Information for all users of the History Faculty and Seeley Library

During the Covid-19 pandemic, the History Faculty will take special precautions to ensure that all its members can stay safe. We are looking forward to returning to our more typical teaching formats in the coming academic year. The Faculty will be offering teaching in person from Michaelmas 2021, and will keep this under review as the pandemic conditions require. Our teaching rooms will be ventilated as far as possible, and users will be asked to wear face coverings when moving about the building and listening to lectures, unless exempt. 

The Seeley Library is open for study purposes between 10am-1pm and 2-4.30pm each weekday.  'Click and collect' materials may still be ordered. 

We ask that everyone does their best to observe the regulations and treat all around them with patience and respect, despite the challenges we face.
