New study spaces opened in the Library

Sydney Jones Library

Two new study spaces have opened in the Sydney Jones Library and the Harold Cohen Library.

Called Group Study Areas, the new spaces can accommodate around 100 students each. The rooms contain: PCs, large monitors for collaborative work, choice of individual or group seating and WiFi.

Speaking about the facilities, Lesley Butler, Deputy Head of Customer Services, said: “We hope the new areas will ease pressure on the libraries during peak study times and that the spaces will generally increase students’ enjoyment of the library.

“So far students seem to be really pleased with the new rooms and they’re proving very popular.”

The rooms were opened as a result of feedback you have previously sent us.

The new  study space in the Sydney Jones Library is located in the basement and the new study space in the Harold Cohen Library is on the Lower Ground Floor.

In the future, the Library is looking to install machines that can scan, print and copy, in the new rooms. The Library also plans to add water fountains and art graphics to both study spaces.

If you would like to find out more about the facilities, please use the question facility on the Library website.

    There are no printers in the new group study area in Harold Cohen Library. Therefore, I have to leave and walk upstairs to find a printer.
