The number of bookable library hours has fluctuated for Bristol students this term, after the policy was introduced in an attempt to limit the spread of coronavirus on campus.

Students had begun the term with just four bookable hours each per week, until the Library Services were able to assess the usage and raise this to eight, following pressure from Bristol SU’s Undergraduate Education Officer, David Ion, and Postgraduate Education Officer, Leah Martindale.
