The IHR has reopened and the common room is available, with service of drinks and light snacks from 12 til 5.
There are a few outstanding problems still to be ironed out:
- PCs are now in place on most floors. There will be a delay to their setup in the basement due to a fault with the network.
- Installation of Wifi has been delayed due to the over-running building works. We expect this to be complete by the end of next week.
- We are awaiting delivery of our photocopiers. Once these are installed, payment will be made by adding money to an account using your IHR card. Credits from existing cards can be transferred.
- The lights in the reading rooms are controlled by sensors by the main landing doors. We have asked if these can be adjusted to avoid them going off while people are working further down the room.
The library collections are all in place with more now available on open access. The catalogue update is almost complete, but please ask staff if you need any help locating material.
Apologies for the inconvenience caused. We will continue to provide updates but please contact us if you’d like any further information on firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 7862 8760.
