This appointment based system will be in accordance with physical distancing requirements and will ensure equitable access to a limited number of study spaces in MIE Library, including PC seats and curriculum room seats. Please note: reading room seats will no longer need booking from the 28/02/2022.

  • These can be booked for a period of 1 hour and 45 minutes.
  • Desks must be sanitised both before and after use.
  • Library users can browse and reserve the desired seat via their phone/device. Once you have selected the Seat/Space and date/time, you will fill in a quick booking form. 
  • Upon reserving a seat you will get an email confirmation with a unique 3 character code in the email that you can use to check-in (and later, check-out), to identify their reservation. Once you reach your booked seat in the Library, you can check-in by either scanning the QR code or by loading a special URL on your smartphone.  Users will be automatically checked-out at the end of the reservation.

The Library follows government and Institute direction and is subject to change.  We will use social media channels and email to keep our students and colleagues up to date on any developments.


A Guide to MIE Library services during COVID 19 period


The Library has implemented a range of supports and measures to ensure continuity of service as well as safeguarding the health and well-being of Library users and staff. 



Health and safety measures

To ensure the safety of all Library users and staff the following measures will be implemented in the Library:

  • When browsing and taking out books, users are asked to maintain a reasonable social distance in all spaces and not to congregate anywhere in the Library.
  • The Library will provide hand gel and sanitising materials at key locations throughout the Library.
  • Wipes will also be provided so that study spaces can be wiped down before and after use.
  • Due to space restrictions, browsing of shelves is limited in the aisles. 
  • One person will be allowed in the printing/photocopying room at a time. 
  • When finished with a book, it should be placed on the nearest available trolley. Books should not be re-shelved - Library staff will take care of this.
  • When leaving the building, please ensure that all books are removed from study spaces and placed on trolleys.
  • Please sanitise your area when you have finished studying.
