The Library, in conjunction with Property Services, is planning a redesign of the Barr Smith Library. This will be a major undertaking, and will take a number of years to complete, but at this early stage we would very much like to hear your ideas. Please tell us, by leaving a comment on this message, or by email, what you would like to see in a redesigned Barr Smith.
Long term plans include new entrances and stairs, and relocation of some services.
In the shorter term (this year) we are intending to redesign Level 3 North, relocating the Unbound journals and moving the group discussion and student computers from levels one and two to this area. Levels one and two would then become areas for quiet study only. Other possible ideas for this area include a cafe or vending machines, and lounge seating. Again, we’d love to hear your thoughts on this change. Please leave us a comment with your ideas, preferably by June 10 for consideration by the project group.
All ideas welcome!
