Why is this happening?

The Hospital and the University have decided to turn part of the Library's current premises into a lunch room. Therefore, printed books and journals will be moved to the BMC Library.

Why will the Library be unmanned?

Recent years there has been a decrease in patrons asking for help in the Medical Library, while requests for individual guidance and workshops have increased. When the Librarians no longer need to man the information desk they can be more available where they are more needed.
