Entry to the building is usually through a rotating door which requires users entering the building to manually push the doors around. To the right-hand side of the rotating door, there is an automatic swing door that can be opened using your uniCARD providing you are registered with the Enabling Team.
Once inside the building, there are swipe-access barriers to get through to the main Library. There is also a wide lane for users with mobility difficulties, and your uniCARD will activate this gate provided you are registered with the Disability Team.
If you need to use these entrances but don't currently have access, please speak to IT Services.
There are accessible toilets on every floor of the Library, accessed with a RADAR key.
There is a lift providing access to all levels of the Library.
In case of fire, the lift should not be used. If you are in the Library and cannot use stairs unaided, you should wait for assistance on the landing areas of either the front or back staircase. Both of these areas are designated Refuge Points. An E-Vac chair is available on each staircase for carrying people downstairs quickly.
