IET London:Savoy Place - Olympic host venue, 12th July - 19th August

IET London: Savoy PlacePlanning on visiting the Library and Archives at IET London: Savoy Place during the Olympics? If so, then there will be a few changes that you need to be aware of in preparation for your visit. We have an exciting opportunity of being a host venue for a National Olympic Committee (NOC) during the actual Olympic period (30th July- 10th August 2012). If it goes ahead then most of the building will be unavailable to staff, members and visitors. The building will start to prepare for this event from Thursday 12 July 2012 and will end on the 19th August 2012.

The Library on the first floor will still be open to members during this time but will be operating a reduced service between the core hours of 10am to 4pm to allow for staff travelling to and from London during the games period. As most of the building access is restricted whilst the NOC are occupying the building, we ask that if you are still preparing to come in during this period that you contact the library or archives at least 24 hours before your visit. If you require any items fetched from our store rooms they will be retrieved every morning in preparation for your visit.  

Your visit will require you to access the building via the Savoy Street side door and not the main entrance. Reception staff will be there to give you a warm friendly greeting into the building. Please be aware that security checks will be in force, so it will be advisable to bring with you your IET membership card or any other form of ID.  A member of library staff will come down to escort you up to the library area.

The Library will be operating a quiet tabled area to the left of the main enquiry desk and to the right, a comfy seating area to hold discussions with your friends and colleagues. There will be coffee/tea making machine, so you can still get your caffeine fix whilst the Kelvin and Appleton Rooms are closed.  Please note, that this is a self-service machine.

The Library and Archives aims to run as full a service as possible during this time and we hope that your visit to the Library and Archives at IET London: Savoy Place is enjoyable.  Please contact the Library and Archives for further information or check out the Unique opportunity for IET London: Savoy Place web page.
