Changes to the BASE Library Service

As a response to Covid-19, some BASE libraries have now closed their counter services (all library closures will be posted on the Locations page). All library teams are still providing an enquiry service and can be contacted by email and phone if their counter is not open. Reservations are not available, however you may browse the catalogue and access e-resources. Items on loan have been automatically renewed and will not incur a fine. Most libraries are not providing new member registrations. More information on current service can be found here.
