982 SignaturesGoal: 1,000
The Wolfson Medical Library, is to have its opening hours reduced by 64% from 168 hours a week, down to 60; restricting it to an 8am-8pm, weekday opening. A drastic move away from the 24 hour access currently offered to medical students; many of whom require access at all hours of the day, due to their shift work in hospitals and heavy workloads.
The University’s plans are due to be implemented at the start of the new semester in September, reducing the opportunity for full consultation with students and staff.
Glasgow University Students' Representative Council (GUSRC) have launched this petition for students to sign to express their opposition to the proposed reduction of this academic provision.
