Construction within the SLZ

May 27, 2008

Here are some pictures of the construction work that has taken place within the new Social Learning Zone during May.

A crane was brought on site to lift into place new roof sections for the former Textile Hall.

The steel work that will support the mezzanine level is now in place. The mezzanine level will eventually house the new Eagle365 computer suite and the Students Union.

The image below shows the area that will eventually form the new entrance to the Library. This is where the Library Enquiry Desk and the Information Desk will be sited along with brand new self service facilities. The big hole that can see in the back wall, will be where the link corridor will be constructed to join the entrance area to the existing Library.

Comments Please!

This summer we intend to move the Textbooks so that they are shelved with the other copies of the same books.

Textbooks will still be for use in the Library only, so you should always be able to get hold of at least a reference copy.

*This will not apply to the Law Library Textbooks.

Any Comments?
