Science Library ground floor refurbishment complete

21 February 2017

The Customer Service Team would like to welcome you to your newly refurbished ground floor of the UCL Science Library.

Come and see the extensive improvements we have made to the space, including a new combined ISD and Library Help Point – no more queuing at several places for the help you need. Our Customer Service Team are also out and about to offer you help with the services we have to offer. These include brand new self service facilities for borrowing and returning books, replacing the original machines we installed back in 2009.

Science Library building

We also have three new bookable group study pods on the ground floor along with individual study carrels and there are now 15 MFD facilities for photocopying, scanning and printing. The area has also been freshly decorated with new carpets (chosen by you) and has improved lighting.

Take a break in our new Science Library Café where you can relax in a comfortable chair, or study with friends while enjoying fresh snacks and a selection of hot and cold drinks. Look out for some exciting news about forthcoming attractions including events and exhibitions – watch this space...

We would like to thank you all for your patience while the building work was taking place, but we think it was worthwhile. Above all, we hope you enjoy using the new facilities and we look forward to hearing your feedback and comments. Please fill in a suggestions form or speak to one of our team.
