Box arrangement for leaving work in the library
Papers/books may only be left overnight if they are placed in one of the new library boxes available for rental at a cost of £3 per term (0th-9th week). There are currently 30 boxes which will be rented to those who are interested on a first come first served basis. The boxes will be named and stored in specific locations. During the day users can take their box to the desk they are working at. All items (books, pens, folders, papers) should be placed in the box when leaving the library for more than one hour. Boxes are to be returned to the storage areas for the night and those left on desks will be removed to the storage areas as part of the morning clearing up process. Clearly the size of the box limits the amount of material that can be kept in the library by each box holder; boxes must fit back in the storage area when full and overspill items will be removed. Those who have not rented a box will no longer be permitted to leave piles of books or papers overnight.
Yellow slips during the day
These are only for use during the day. A yellow slip must be left on piles of work left unattended (however briefly) during the day. Unidentified books and other material will be re-shelved/removed during the main clear-up sessions of the day around 8 - 10 am & 4 - 5 pm.
