Access to the MIRC collections

We are sorry but we are currently unable to reopen MIRC. Your safety is our priority, and the space requires some changes before it is ready to use.

We are continuing to provide an online service. School of Management staff and students are able to use the following services on site:

•    Click and collect: Reserve print items from the MIRC collection and then make an appointment to pick them up from the Kings Norton Library.
•    Study space: Book a private study space in the Kings Norton Library. (Seating capacity has been reduced to meet social distancing guidelines.)

We will be announcing further changes on this page as we are able to provide more in-house services, so please do check it regularly.

Visiting the Kings Norton Library

Please only visit the library if you have a confirmed booking for one of the services above, or if you are returning print items to us. We are unable to offer any in-person support at the moment. Please read our advice before you visit.

Online help and support

We will continue to provide online services and support via our Library website.

Library staff are available online to help you every weekday, 9am-5pm. You are welcome to contact us by email and if you need more in-depth advice, please email your Information Specialist and they will arrange a video call with you. 

The majority of our resources are available online 24/7. Some publishers are also providing free or extended access to their resources during COVID-19.

We are still investigating remote access to Bloomberg and Eikon and will update this page when we have more information. 

You can also Suggest a purchase (for online material only at this time).

Returning existing loan items

If you are ready to return items you have on loan from us, you can either bring them back to the Kings Norton Library (if you live nearby), or contact if you live further away and would like to return them by post.
