Potential noise disturbance in The Sir Duncan Rice Library – 15 to 22 July

There will be important work carried out in The Sir Duncan Rice Library from Monday 15 to Friday 22 July 2019 and we would like to apologise in advance for any noise resulting from the work.

The activities which will take place during that week are:

  • Insulation repairs on the roof
  • Replacement of classroom PCs across all floors
  • Carpet replacement in the North stairwell*

*With regards to the work taking place in the North stairwell, please note that there will be no access from the Ground Floor, therefore we kindly ask that you use the lifts instead. The South stairwells can also be used, but are only accessible between Floors 1 and 6.

If you are affected by the potential noise and require a quieter area, please make use of our Silent Study rooms on Floors 3-6. Alternatively, the Taylor Library is also open on the Old Aberdeen campus.

We apologise for the disturbance and any inconvenience.
