It may not look like it from this photo, but the new Student Discussion area, at the northern end of Level 3 in the Barr Smith Library, is nearly complete.
Despite appearances, I am informed by the project supervisor that the space will be returned to us early next week. Painting is almost finished, carpet will be laid starting tomorrow (Friday), and joinery works finished off.
So next week, we should be able to bring in furnishings, including restoring the student PC lab.
There will be some additional work after next week, including new blinds.
Meanwhile, work on the new Lending Services area is proceeding, and expected to continue through to the end of March.
