|Main Library: History tables upgrade
UCL Library Services are working to improve the study environment. As part of a phased plan to upgrade furniture, we are replacing the Main Library 2nd floor History mismatched tables which have been collected over the years, with tables in keeping with the historical nature of the building. Any original Richardson tables (with the leather tops) are being retained. This work will also result in a modest increase in numbers of study places in the corridor.
On Monday 16/12, defunct tables will be removed. From Tuesday 17/12, the new tables (which will also have power sockets for laptop users) will be installed and connected to the building’s electrics. Work will be completed by Friday 20/12.
Provision is being made for table-top lighting, which will be added to the new tables in future.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope that you will enjoy the new facilities.
|Christmas opening arrangements 2013
UCL Library Services is pleased to announce that the Main, Science and Cruciform Libraries will open for 7 days over the Christmas Period during the UCL closure period.
In addition to this the Graduate Hub, Medical Students' Hub and the Research Grid study spaces will be open 24 hours over this period from 21st December 2013 to 1st January 2014. This will include Christmas day and Boxing Day.
We are also looking to provide additional learning spaces over the Christmas period.
|What are your views on UCL’s learning spaces?
Satisfied with UCL’s learning spaces? Think they could be improved? Tell us…
With the creation of spaces such as the JBS Haldane Hub, The Cloisters, Research Grid, Graduate Hub and Jeremy Bentham Room a number of new learning spaces are being developed across UCL.
In order to assess the impact of these spaces we would like to hear your views on how successful these spaces are and how they can be improved.
This survey will take no longer than 5 minutes and all participants will be entered in to a prize draw for the chance to win a Kindle.
|Graduate student at UCL? Visit the Graduate Hub…
From Thursday 10 October 2013, a new study and recreational space will be available for all UCL graduate students: the Graduate Hub.
Seats have got integrated power sockets for laptop users
This central space, solely for the use of UCL graduate students, is located in the South Wing basement opposite the Print Room Café. Incorporating the old Graduate Common Room, the new suite of rooms comprises a seminar room for group discussion and presentations (which will soon be bookable), a breakout space with integrated kitchenette, printing and scanning facilities, and a revamped common room. From Spring 2014, the space will be further extended with a suite of individual study carrels. Following the successful model of the Research Grid, the new space is managed by Library Services and is open 24-7.
Further information on dedicated graduate spaces, and maps to all locations, can be found on the Graduate School website.
If you have any queries or comments about the space, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

|Call for student views on management of study space
With the Research Grid, JBR, Cloisters and the Anatomy Hub, there are a number of new learning spaces external to the library which are popping up all over UCL. How these spaces are managed is currently being evaluated and we need student views to help us.
Library Services and Estates are currently evaluating what UCL are doing so far in terms of management of study space, to share best practice and plan management of future student hubs.
In order to get all views incorporated in the report I would like to speak to users of the different spaces across UCL. If you are a student who uses either the Research Grid, JBR, Cloisters or Anatomy Hub then it would be great to hear your views. If you are interested in sharing your views then please contact me at email@example.com. As a thank you all respondents will also be entered in to a prize draw for the chance to win £10 worth of Amazon vouchers.
Our Explore service is now available.
Please try out the service and leave us your feedback.
