Thomas Parry Library – Summer 2018

To tie in with the move of Departments to Penglais in the summer, we will be closing Thomas Parry Library on Friday 10th August 2018 and beginning the transfer of books and journals to Hugh Owen Library on Monday 13th August 2018. We’re hoping to have these items out of circulation for as short a period as possible however, if there is something you can’t find during the Summer period, let us know either via the Enquiry Desk or email

We’ve started this blog to keep you up to date with any developments on this move, along with giving you an opportunity to be amongst the first to see how we plan to accommodate all this extra material at Hugh Owen. In the meantime, you may start to notice some initial moves in the Library to prepare for this influx. We’ve already rearranged the layout on Level E, creating some more study spaces by taking down some shelves that were no longer needed, and we will keep you up to date with any further changes, but as always, you can ask our staff if there’s something you can’t find or that isn’t where you think it should be.
