Learning Centre Activity Over The Summer (6)

The Harrison Learning Centre will reopen on Monday 8th August. Access to the Learning Centre will be via its new entrance opposite the Student Union. The third floor PC suite will remain closed until 5th September; this is to support the upgrading of PC provision throughout the building. Existing computers on the first and second floor remain available for use.

The Walsall Learning Centre will close for 2 weeks: 22nd August - 2nd September. This close down is to support the move into the new Performance Hub. The Learning Centre will reopen on Monday 5th September in the Performance Hub.

We recommend if you are planning to make a specific visit to any of the Learning Centres over the summer that you check in advance of your journey.

Screenshot of Summon searchSummon is huge improvement over our previous catalogue as it allows you to find much more than just our physical stock.
