Library staff remain seriously concerned about the health and safety implications of Library study space being open to students.
Two motions were overwhelmingly passed at last week’s emergency general meeting supporting Library colleagues, which you can read at leedsucu.org.uk/members-vote-to-call-to-close-library-study-spaces
Members at the meeting were keen to ensure that the university provides study space for students with essential needs, and our library reps emphasised the part of the motions which calls for the use of unstaffed and remotely monitored study space such as computer clusters rather than libraries.
The branch will be calling for a UK-wide campaign by UCU to close library study spaces and return libraries to a click and collect service.
