You may have noticed a flurry of activity out the back of the Hugh Owen building this week. We have taken delivery of the furniture and the newly refurbished space is really beginning to take shape.
As we come closer to our launch date (Wednesday the 3rd of January) a reminder of the benefits of the refurbishment:
21 Computer Study Spaces
24 Group Study Spaces
21 Flexible/relaxed seating spaces
We will be increasing user space from:
22 Computer Study Spaces (including height adjustable desk for wheelchair users)
76 Group Study Spaces
26 Flexible / relaxed seating
This is an 88% increase in study spaces for you on Level D.
We have re-purposed back office spaces and stores to create:
A vending area for you to enjoy hot and cold drinks and cold snacks. This space will also be complimented with a vending machine for supplies of stationery.
Brand new gender neutral facilities on Level D.
Brand new disabled facilities, which in addition to the work the University has undertaken on the Piazza now makes Level D far more accessible.
Two new Group Study Rooms for up to six users and includes high spec PCs and large screen monitors.
We have improved ventilation, heating and lighting replacing dated systems with more energy-efficient modern systems, which saves both money and the environment as well as creating a more pleasant working environment for both students and the staff who work on Level D.
A reminder that we re-open Level D again on Wednesday January 3rd at 8:30am.. We hope to see you then and look forward to hearing your feedback on this space.
Dear library users!
Great news – the lighting and air conditioning is now installed and our crew is putting ceiling tiles in the ceiling frame.
On a different note, we would like to encourage all students and staff to feedback to us all your suggestions, likes and dislikes in this year’s Information Services User Survey: https://aber.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/isusersurvey17
We want to know what you think about your library, the Level D refurbishment and also the services we provide.
We wish you a good week,
Ania and Arfon
