Social Learning Zone and Student Union

April 18, 2008

We thought you would be interested in seeing a series of original 3D architect’s renderings of what the new Social Learning Zone and Student Union mezzanine level might look like. We say ‘might’ as often plans change. Please keep checking back here for further updates.

The Social Learning Zone looking towards the new Library entrance. The Library entrance area will be screened off from the Social Learning Zone to minimise noise intrusion.

The New Eagle Library Layout

April 8, 2008

Most of the decisions regarding the reorganisation of the Eagle Library floor space to accommodate Chadwick Library book stock and equipment have now been finalised. In arriving at this layout the Library Integration Project Team have endeavoured to provide a balance between areas where you can study alone, work as a group or use PCs and scanners.
The new Library entrance will be through the mall in what will be known as the Social Learning Zone, this is an area with comfortable seating where you can get together in groups to chat about your projects and assignments and also take advantage of our wireless access service (TeleGeneration).
You can view the new Library floor layout by clicking the links below (they will open up as PDF documents). If you are not familiar with how Eagle Library looks now, click the link at the bottom of the list to see our current floor layout.
