COVID-19 update

COVID-19 update, Access to Archives and Special Collections 23 March 2020

Based on the latest UK and Scottish Government advice relating to Coronavirus (Covid-19), the University of Strathclyde Library has made the decision to close the Archives and Special Collections reading room from 5pm, 17/03/20 for the foreseeable future.

We will, however, continue our remote enquiry service. Although we do not have access to the majority of our collections, we will monitor our email and social media regularly and will respond to enquiries as promptly and fully as we can. We will record enquiries requiring collections access and revisit them once we are back in the office.

We will post any updates to this situation as they arise. Apologies for any inconvenience and we appreciate your understanding at this time.
