Learning Space Enhancements
As you know, the renovation of space on 1/F and LG1 of the Library was completed in time for the start of Spring Term.  Reaction by students has been very positive, with both areas instantly becoming among the most popular in the building!
The entire design was informed by user feed-back, most notably from last year's Learning Space Design Workshops.  For those who participated – please accept our thanks.  More information about the workshops is online at
To summarize, newspapers and periodicals from LG1 were moved to G/F, making room for a redesign of the Media Resources area and an extension of the Learning Commons.  The 1/F space was shifted from the previous high-density "study hall" arrangement to a somewhat more flexible furniture mix and space layout with greater focus on the grand window views.  At the same time, the seating density needed during exam periods was retained.  The Thesis Room was also converted from open tables to individual carrels in a dedicated "deep quiet zone".
