Out of order 😦
Unfortunately the water fountain in Taylor Library is temporarily out of order.
We apologize for the inconvenience and will let you know as soon as it is up and running again.
The nearest alternative is in the vending machine area of Taylor A block.
IT Services have analysed usage of MFDs in Taylor Library (and across campus) and have made a some of changes as a result of their findings. Now, the four MFDs opposite the issue desk are all black and white machines as they are by far the most heavily used. If you require colour printing, the MFD in the PC classroom on floor 2 provides this option. It has been replaced with a larger model in order to better cope with the level of use. Just make sure to select the colour printer when sending your job.
Calling all new Law students (and any others who’d like to come and study in our fine library)! Why not familiarise yourself with the Taylor Library from the comfort of the pub/halls/flat (delete as appropriate) with our new virtual tour? You’ll find brief explanations of key areas and facilities as well as plenty of links to further information and resources to help you get the most out what we have to offer.
Happy Freshers Week, and see you soon!
