Library Easter closure

Posted on 3 April 2020

We are closing the Library entirely from 5pm on Tuesday 7 April until 9am on Tuesday 14 April.

As well as the physical buildings being closed, all Library staff will be on leave during this time as part of the Easter break being observed across most of the University.

The Library’s online resources will continue to be available during this period:

  • YorSearch can be used to find lots of online resources on every subject.
  • The Subject Guides for each department are a good starting point for resources related to your discipline.
  • The E-resources Guide is where you’ll find all our online resources. This includes a list of extra content we currently have access to and can be viewed by choosing the ‘Covid-19’ category of resources.

We advise you to check our coronavirus FAQs for both staff and students to get the latest information:

You can also get lots more guidance and support:

We won’t be answering the phone during the closure period, but you can leave a voicemail with your name and username. Or you can send an email to the Library during this time on and we’ll pick up your message as soon as we can when we reopen.

We hope you can also take some time to rest before the new term, and we look forward to working with you again after the Easter break.
