We are taking several measures to provide a safe and effective library service at this time. We are continuously monitoring changes in national advice, so please do return to this page for updates on Library Services. The University is also providing updates on advice.
Returning Hive loans
If you have books from The Hive and are leaving Worcester, there are two options for returning them.
The Hive is closed, and will remain closed until further notice. All events are cancelled.
The askalibrarian enquiry desk is offering a service via email and chat.
To prevent fines building up, all return dates will be extended automatically until further notice.
If you already have books that you were not able to return and you have incurred fines, please contact the askalibrarian team.
We are suspending the reservations service until further notice.
Accessing information resources
We are also buying more ebook copies of print books where possible, and you can ask us for specific titles by using the book request form.
We have stopped providing print books and other physical items for inter-library requests. However, we will supply ebooks instead where possible, and can still provide online articles.
