Library Renovation: Nearly There

One thing you’ll immediately notice about the reference area is the new configuration of PCs. It gives this part of the library more space and at peak times fewer bottle necks.

The south side of the library in the photograph below also has a much lighter feel to it. Gone are the old carrels – you’ll be able to see straight away if a work station is available.

Below is a new area designed for students to use laptops. Thanks to the new improved wifi, getting a signal here shouldn’t be a problem (don’t forget to register your laptop and mobile devices with CIS in Room 703 during office hours).

What a difference the old quiet room tables make to the north side of the library, nice for small group work, and yes they are moveable.

Finally, the teen corner (next to the paperback section) – it’s still a work in progress, but we really like this splash of green!

We’d love to know what you think of the recent library renovation project, feedback is always welcome.
