The collections from King’s Manor Library have been temporarily relocated to the Morrell Library. We’re now busy doing lots of processing work on the books ready for them to be returned to King’s Manor in a new layout in September; you can read more below about our anticipated timeline for the next couple of months. King’s Manor Library currently remains open for study space bookings, and you are able to request daily book delivery to King’s Manor as before.
We know you’ve been waiting with bated breath to see our plans for the new Library furniture! In order to support us in making our final decisions, we’d really appreciate your help. We’ve heard back from suppliers with a range of styles to match our design brief and would like your feedback about the options available to us. Please complete this form to tell us your thoughts (UoY login required). The form will close at 9am on Monday 23 August, after which we’ll use your feedback to guide our final selection.
We also intend to provide an opportunity for you to try out some of the possible chair designs, as we appreciate it’s hard to choose from just a picture. We’re working with suppliers to determine what sample furniture they have available and will confirm soon what will be possible.
After we close the furniture feedback on Monday 23 August, we intend to make our final selection and to place our order with suppliers as soon as possible. Due to lead times for delivery it won’t be possible to have the new furniture ready for the start of the new academic year. We didn’t want to rush the selection process, so instead we intend for the new furniture to be delivered before the start of the Spring 2022 term. Here is our full anticipated timeline for the next couple of months, which as always might be subject to change:
Look out for updates on all of the above as we have more details, or contact us in the meantime if you have any questions.
