  1. Is there any suggestion when the library will be opened? Carrying out research and teaching planning is almost impossible without access to books, paper journals, access to texts from other libraries etc. Online resources are ok but have limitations. If they didn’t presumably the university would not have invested so much capital spend in enlarging Templeman…

    1. Hi Sarah, thank you for your comments. The Templeman Library will remain closed until further notice following Government and University guidance; although we continue to review the situation. We understand that there will be difficulties for students and staff carrying out research and teaching planning during this time. Our staff are here to help you every step of the way.

      Every Wednesday between 10:00 and 12:00 our academic liaison librarians are holding virtual drop-in sessions – please see our Chat to a Librarian news item for more details. Wide-ranging support is available to help you research, use library resources and find alternatives if the resource you need is not available digitally. If you can’t make these drop-in sessions, please email library-enquiry@kent.ac.uk.

      The University is actively responding to ongoing developments with the Coronavirus pandemic and throughout this time the health, safety and welfare of our students, staff and visitors is our highest priority. Any changes to the current situation will be announced on the University website and communicated to staff and students via email.

      We look forward to welcoming you back to the Library as soon as it is safe to do so.
