Thank you for your feedback on opening hours at St Mary’s College Library.

We feel that the trial of extended opening hours which ran last semester (weekdays until 1945) was successful and we would like to offer these hours on an ongoing basis. However we do not currently have the staffing provision to support this throughout the current semester – in particular the 1700-1800 period you mention is a pressure point for staff in the Main Library. However, looking ahead, we do plan to factor in the cost of extended opening in our 2018/19 budget bid. In the meantime we are confident we will at least be able to offer extended weekday and weekend opening at St Mary’s during the forthcoming revision/exam period.

Please do not hesitate to get back in touch with any further comments or suggestions.

best wishes
