Library card update

Here's an update on the library cards, particularly for returning students and staff:

Over the summer the Library has been carrying out a number of projects to enhance space and access. One project has been to replace our swipe card turnstiles with proximity readers. These detect valid library cards and open automatically for you, easing the traffic flows into the Library. The card also acts as your NUS card and carries access to your printing and photocopying account.
Over the next few weeks we will be replacing everyone's cards. We have three self-service booths in place on Level 2 of the Library, open from 9.00-4.30 Monday-Friday for student cards. Once you have registered online, please come along to the Library to make your card. To speed the self-service card-making process up you can choose to keep your existing photo if you wish. All cards should then be collected from the Issue Desk and are usually ready for collection within half a day. We will e-mail you to let you know when you can collect your card, and send you an immediate e-mail too to confirm your PIN.
Staff are asked to come to the Issue Desk rather than using the self-service machines.
The Library will be making the cards for sometime, so there is no immediate urgency for you to collect a card now. Choose your times carefully and you could avoid the queues.
