The lower ground floor in the Boots Library is now open for business!

The lower ground floor in the library has now reopened, and books with class marks in the 700s, so most of the art, design and architecture books, are now located here.

In addition to the newly relocated books, the lower ground floor also has:
  • DVD collection
  • Current art and design journals and magazines, including titles formerly held in restricted access, such as Selvedge, Source, and current trend forecasting magazines
  • Back issues of all journals and magazines
  • Sofas and comfortable seating for informal reading
  • Additional computers, available for individuals and also small groups
  • A brand new study area where the Library Training Room was located, with large tables, to allow students to spread out and work more effectively when doing visual research
  • An additional book issue/returns machine
  • Black and white, and colour print/copy/scan facilities
The space is being well used, and we’ve received very positive feedback about the space from students and staff who have seen it.

A quick note about the Trend Union books – these have not moved, and are still on the ground floor, by the main information desk (almost next to the enquiry desk) in a brand new cupboard.  Please ask any nearby staff if you have trouble locating them.

If you have any questions about this, or anything else, please don’t hesitate to contact either of your Liaison Librarians.
