Physical Library at Hollins Park House

The Evidence and Library Services at Hollins Park is open for you to use.

It looks a little different and there are a few new guidelines for use in place:

  • ALL users of the Library MUST wear a mask/face covering
  • All users are required to sanitise their hands when they enter the Library
  • We only have 3 computers available to be used (these can be booked in advance)
  • Only 4 users (3 on the computers & 1 browsing the books) are allowed in the Library at any one time
  • Only 1 person can browse the books at any one time.
  • Users are required to clean the computers and surrounding areas that they have used, before they leave the Library
  • No study areas are open at the moment – these areas have been taped off

Thank you in advance for your understanding and co-operation.
We look forward to seeing and hearing from you again.

We offer an enquiry service, dealing with anything from straightforward requests for information, through to literature searches, to answer more complex or detailed enquiries.  

We provide one-to-one and group inductions for new starters and existing Library members
