We’ve had a great time at the University so far, having been based in the Oculus Building on Tuesday and at the Level One foyer in the Library yesterday. Over the past two days, we’ve talked to over 60 students about the Library, leading to lots of interesting conversations where you’ve discussed what you like, what you don’t like, and what you would like to change.
On the whole, you all seem pleased with the range of spaces, services and functions in the library. There are very few things you would like to lose, but one of most necessary changes you’ve talked about is the need for more desk space, especially during the third term. While one of the most interesting features you’ve raised to improve your experience of the library is a relaxation room where you can unwind, with places to nap and spend time neither working or socialising.
In case anyone was expecting us at the Piazza today, after a couple of days of unseasonably hot weather, we’re going to stay in the library as rain is forecast for later on in the afternoon.
If you’ve got any ideas you’d like to share with us, make your way to the Library entrance next to the help desk. We are excited to hear your most creative ideas and will be here until about 5pm.
