Caerleon, Duthie, and Nursing & Healthcare Studies Libraries – Important News

As part of Cardiff University investment in improved educational facilities on the Heath campus site, a new clinical skills suite will be housed in Ty Dewi Sant in the space currently occupied by the Nursing and Healthcare Studies Library (NHCS Library).  Caerleon and NHCS libraries are scheduled to move to the Cochrane building on a date to be announced and in the meantime will temporarily be relocated to the Sir Herbert Duthie Library, Second floor, B2, UHW.

To enable the collections to be moved, the Caerleon and NHCS libraries will close at 5pm on Friday 12 August.  Their staff and book collections will transfer to the Duthie Library.  Books will be available on the shelves from Monday 22 August and journals on request.

The IT labs on the first floor in Ty Dewi Sant will remain where they are.

Current Library Summer Opening Times

Summer opening will be slightly different this year- due to the big changes that are about to happen. We will be preparing the book stock for moving and interfiling during these times, please do be patient with us, next year library resources will be available 24/7 and all under one fantastic roof!

Watch here for news of when the collections will be unavailable and when we will be running book fetching services to compensate for stock being out of bounds and how this will work.

Remember that the 24hr IT room and study rooms will be available throughout the Summer, we will let you know here when these are due to be moved too, but we will ensure that its not at the same time as the book stock moving!
