    Brunel Library Opening Week of July 5th

      Due to Covid-19, many post-graduate students who are on campus during the summer months have had to prepare their dissertations in the walls of their room in their flat. It was recently, announced that libraries are allowed to be open starting July 4th in the UK. The Brunel Library seems to be preparing for the students in the fall or students partaking in the August Exams. It would be beneficial to the well-being of the students who still remain on campus to be able to study in the Library and to reserve books that pertain to their research. By voting, we will be able to show that there a number of students who would utilize the library if it were to be open in the beginning of July.

    2:33pm on 27 Jun 20 This definitely needs to happen. Especially for post-graduate students. I’ve been unable to attain the support needed to get the resources I need to write my dissertation.

    6:52pm on 27 Jun 20 I agree. Also for undergraduates. We should have access to computers and the printers. We should return our books ourselves using the return self-service machines. All done with socially distancing and with safety measures.

    12:50pm on 29 Jun 20 I definitely think this is a great initiative to ensure current students on campus are afforded with a feasible learning space, and the rest to also get access to the resources at the library.

    Sarah Dib
    7:09pm on 29 Jun 20 I agree. It would be very useful. Some students do not have a good access to the internet or a quiet place where to study at home. This would be very helpful to work on our dissertation.

    9:13am on 2 Jul 20 Good morning, Thank you for your submission, i have passed this on to our Full-time Officer team to make inquires and discuss with the relevant University staff .

    10:19am on 3 Jul 20 Morning, I have an update for you regarding this Idea submission. The University is currently looking at re-opening the library, there are a number of factors that effect when this will be. Firstly all the relevant departments need to declare the Bannerman COVID secure, in addition to this the front line staff need to be consulted about returning to campus. Capacity also needs to be considered from both a staffing and user point of view. There is a lot of coordination needed to make this happen, but the hope is to be able to offer something for quiet study and access to stock before the exams in August e.g. sometime in the 2nd half of July.

    9:07am on 4 Jul 20 Opening the library would be so amazing even for UG students as there still is a possibility of resists or just wanting to study in a good atmosphere. Please do open it!
    Rebecca Davies
    2:51pm on 24 Jul 20 The library has just announced on twitter that they will be partially open from Monday to give access to stock. They will also have bookable study spaces available for students sitting exams in August.
