Construction works begin soon for new learning spaces
We will begin construction of two major new learning spaces within our first floor reading rooms from Monday 10 February.
We will do our best to minimise disruption while the works take place behind the hoarding, but researchers working in the first floor reading room and library may still experience some noise disturbance. Work is due to complete in June 2020.
If you are planning to visit our reading rooms within the next few months, we encourage you to order your documents in advance to ensure that we reserve a seat for you.
