IT Network Disruption at St Luke’s Library Sat 1st and Sat 8th March 2014

Due to essential works on the St Luke’s campus there will be disruption to IT and phone services during two Saturdays in March. Before construction work can start on the South Cloisters development, two fibre cables linking St Luke’s to Streatham and St Luke’s to the RD&E need to be re-routed away from the new foundations. There is no ideal time to schedule this essential work however these two dates were considered the best in order to avoid maximum disruption. We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause.

The works are planned from 6am to 6pm on:

  • Saturday 1st March
  • Saturday 8th March


Saturday 1st March

No IT network services will be available at St Luke’s Library. This means no internet data services or IP telephone service. The phone service will divert to the external public network.

St Luke’s Library will open as usual from 10am-6pm but there will be reduced services. Staff will be able to issue and return items and take fine payments (cash only) at the Enquiry Desk. The library catalogue will be unavailable but library staff can still offer help and advice so please don’t hesitate to ask. The PC Cluster and 24/7 Study Space will remain open but there will be no internet. Swipe card access and heating will continue to work as normal.

Saturday 8th March

Although work will be taking place on this day, St Luke’s Library will be unaffected and will open as usual from 10am-6pm with our full range of services available. The PC Cluster and 24/7 Study Space will also be open as usual. However, be aware that IT services generally will be at risk throughout the day.

On both days Library staff will be available to provide help and support.
