Our opening hours have changed for the Winter Vacation

Both The Murray Library and St. Peter’s Library are open every day (with the exception of Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year’s Day). Staffed hours finish Friday 21 December 2018 and we will reply to e-mails and chats as soon as possible from Thursday 3 January 2019. You can view all our opening hours on our website.

Live chat is available 24/7
During our staffed hours, you'll chat with University of Sunderland library staff. We're the same staff who help you out in the library and deliver your study skills sessions. During our unstaffed hours, you'll chat with a cooperative of librarians from around the world who've been given lots of useful information to help you. If there is something they can't answer they'll let us know and we'll follow it up as soon as possible.

We will use the information you submit only for the purpose of contacting your question. We may analyse the data we collect to develop and improve our services in future. We will not use your personal data for marketing purposes or share it with any third parties.
