Additional facilities


The photocopier in the library's computer room reproduces both in black & white and colour. Copies are made using your University card, and you can add funds to your University card here. Cash is not used.

The paper trays are checked and replenished as necessary every morning. If you find that the machine is out of paper during office hours, please ask the Library staff for help. At all other times (evenings and weekends), please ask at the Porters' Lodge.
