Staying Safe in the Library

After a year of booking spaces, swiping cards and social distancing we are thrilled to be opening the Library back up again for all. There are just a couple of things we need to be mindful of as we continue to keep each other safe. 

Masks 

Masks must be worn at all times in the library unless you are medically exempt. They must be worn even when working at your desk. They can be removed when taking a bite of food or a sip of drink, but must be put back on when finished. 

Hygiene 

Wipes and hand sanitiser will be freely available throughout the floors and we encourage all Library patrons to use these when working in the building. Our domestic staff will be conducting an enhanced cleaning regime throughout the day. 

Respect 

While there are no social-distancing rules in place, we ask you to be respectful of the boundaries of other library users. Library staff will be working hard to keep the building safe so please ensure you treat them with the same level of respect. 

Following these three simple guidelines will help ensure the Library is a safe and comfortable place to work for all. If you choose not to follow these guidelines then you may be asked to leave. 

If at any point you feel uncomfortable you can speak to a member of the Library team using our chat service on the Library homepage or on our smart tables. 

If you require books but do not wish to enter the main Library floors then please use our Click and Collect service. 

We also have a limited number of bookable PCs if you wish to secure a study space in the Library before you arrive. 

If you’d like to discuss any of these guidelines then just reach out to us at library@gcu.ac.uk or 0141 273 1000. 

We can’t wait to welcome you back!
