The new service provides:

The Avenue Library is now closed and in preparation for Phase 2 of the project.  Phase 2 will be the redevelopment of this area, planned completion is mid-November 2015, and will include additional quiet study space, interactive digital facilities and more group study rooms.

Be aware that the Library & Learning Commons is only one part of the University Library service, many more materials for Humanities programmes and a wider variety of study space is available to you just a short walk away in the Hartley Library.
