The movers will begin to take all the books from the Herbarium, and some of the books from the Library, for transfer to the new library in the Sainsbury Building, on Tuesday 26 July. Although the move will be completed on Thursday 28 July, there will be considerable disruption and mess in both libraries for some weeks.
The Simpson Collection, plus all floras, monographs, and taxonomic works, will in future be housed in the library in the Sainsbury Building. Unfortunately, it will probably be some weeks before staff will easily be able to locate any item moving to the new library, except for books from the Simpson Collection.
The library catalogue will continue to show the old locations for some weeks, so contact us if you need to consult any material from the Library, giving us time to locate and fetch it! The Herbarium moves out of the current building on 26 July and will NOT BE ACCESSIBLE AT ALL UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
Please bear with us, and hopefully by October we will have two libraries with coherent collections, and better spaces to work in.
