Find a Library space – new tool coming soon

New technology is being introduced across the UCL campus to help us make better use of our space. Small devices are being placed under desks throughout UCL libraries’ 4,000 study spaces. The devices use infra-red technology to detect if a desk is available. The data from these will be used to show students where there are available study spaces through a web-based dashboard. Occupied and available space will be shown by red or green markers on library floor plans. This will make it far easier for students to find available space in the future.
