Maintenance works at the University Library

13 October 2020

The University Library (UB) is in the process of parting with its internal book transport system. After having served us tirelessly for almost 40 years, the time has come to replace it with a new and more convenient, state-of-the-art automated transport system. We expected to be able to use the new transport system around the end of October.

We will do our best to limit noise disturbances as much as possible. We will keep you updated on possible disturbances via Twitter and Facebook.

Book requests

Despite the book transport system being completely out of order for two months, we will continue delivery of library materials as usual.

At times, depending on the nature and the location of the (de)installation, there may be some delay in delivery of materials to the UB booklockers.
