The lz@kx will close at 4pm on May 24th 2013 as part of the building works necessary for the CSM Foundation relocation to King’s Cross and Archway. The lz@kx will be moving to the 1st Floor of the Granary Building at King’s Cross, and we plan to open there in August 2013. Whilst we are closed we will provide a small printing facility within CSM library for anyone who needs to print using the white print card, and a very small number of MACs will be made available for students to use. Follow @learningzone on Twitter for updates, and students and staff are welcome to provide feedback and thoughts about the new ‘zone’.
We are sincerely sorry for the inconvenience that the closure will cause.
We will post some more news about your options if you want to use open access IT, printers, photocopiers etc… as soon as we are able to.

Library Services is pleased to announce that as part of a programme of college building works, a full refurbishment of the LCF library at John Prince’s Street will take place this summer. Arrangements are being made to relocate collections and services to the second floor of the building with a view to opening the new library at the beginning of the new academic year.
The scale of the works across the college will mean that the JPS site will be closed between 1 July – 31 August 2013 and therefore Library Services will be putting some alternative services in place to support students during this time.
- Staff and students will continue to be able to use libraries and IT open access facilities across Library Services.
- Loan entitlements for LCF staff and students will be extended to enable you to borrow additional items for the summer period.
- Academic staff are being contacted by library staff to identify a small number of essential resources required during the summer period which could be made available at another Library Services site and to consider further support measures during the period of closure.

It has been reported that there are network problems on campus throughout the University which are affecting some services. Some pages are slow to load and some forms are missing. IT services are investigating the problem and we will update as soon as we have further information.

The work for the previously announced proxy server move will take place between 6.00 and 10.00am on Sunday 21st April 2013.
During this period, off-campus users of the e-Library may find that they will need to follow ‘Shibboleth/Institutional login’ links when clicking through to full-text from search results.
In order to minimize any disruption, a Temporary Databases A-Z List will be in place on the e-Library over the weekend, using Shibboleth, rather than EZProxy urls.
Users should still enter their UAL network username and password when prompted.
