Two of SUNCAT’s Contributing Libraries are closed (or to be closed) for major refurbishment. The Royal Society’s Library and Archives are currently closed for renovation and will be re-launched in mid-2010 as the Royal Society Centre for the History of Science. As a result there is no access to its collections until at least June 2010.
Manchester Central Library will be closing in July 2010, due to re-open in 2013. The Central Library has to be completely emptied before work can begin and the stock (more than 22 miles of shelving) put into storage for the duration of the closure. The library will close in phases and the last department leaves the building by mid-June. An interim city centre library will be provided for the duration of the refurbishment period commencing Spring 2010. Stock from the Central Library will not be accessible during the closure period.
