We anticipate that the UEA Library will be particularly busy during the University main examination period from 27 April - 5 June 2015 with very heavy demand for the limited number of study spaces and facilities available.
We, therefore, recommend that if possible you delay any planned visit to UEA Library until later in the year, when staff and facilities will be under less pressure and we should be better able to help you access the resources you need. If this is not possible it would be best to time your visit for the early part of the morning as this is normally are quietest time of day.
Bank Holidays: Monday 4 May, Monday 25 May Monday 31 August: On these days you will need a valid UEA campus card to enter the building and so visitors will NOT be able to access the Library on those days.
The Library is a member of SCONUL Access, a co-operative venture between higher education libraries. It enables staff, research students, full time postgraduates and part-time, distance learning and placement students to borrow materials from other libraries.
The full list of participating institutions and further details of the scheme can be found on the SCONUL Access website.
Information for those from other participating institutions wanting to make use of UEA Library
If your home institution is a SCONUL member and you are eligible to join the scheme you need to apply via the SCONUL Access website, from whom you will receive a confirmation email. You then need to submit a V2a Application form with your confirmation email or SCONUL card and home institution ID card to the Library Helpdesk in UEA Library.
UEA students and staff can also borrow from the Libraries of other SCONUL Institutions
