Library chat service

From Tuesday 18 April-Friday 28 May, Library Services will be trialling a chat service from 1-4 pm on weekdays as an extra way of supporting students and staff during this busy period. You can start a chat by clicking the green Can we help? Live chat button on the right side of the library’s website.

Summer library services

A message will soon be going out to students confirming The Hive’s summer hours. The library services at The Hive will be over the summer, apart from the bank holidays on May 29 and August 28 when the building is closed. Loan periods will stay the same so that books are available for students studying over the summer. If you are away from Worcester and plan to take library books with you please be aware that you must be prepared to return any items which may be reserved by other borrowers. All online resources will continue to be available for you to use wherever you are based.

Our enquiry service will also be available so if you have any questions about library services, please contact We will be offering limited hours during the summer, and more details will be sent out in due course.

Resource Lists rollover

All Resource Lists will be rolled over on 5 May. All 2016/17 lists need to be published by this date, and staff will not be able to log into Aspire on this date. All published lists will remain visible to students. More details will be sent out to staff in due course. If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact your Liaison Librarian.

Student study period at The Hive

All meeting rooms, apart from the Studio, are reserved for student use from 23 April-13 May. During this time, students may use the rooms freely to study in, and it will not be possible to book the rooms for teaching or any other meetings. Please encourage your students to come down and use The Hive during this period. This year, Library Services have also purchased laptop tables to make it easier for students to study in our soft chairs.
