New WBL Exhibition

On Monday there'll be a new exhibition opening on the Mezzanine level in Western Bank Library. This time our exhibition space is being dedicated to celebrating fifty years of Western Bank Library. Curated by Jacky Hodgson and Karen Middlemast, The Million Book Library...
charts the history of the site from its rural beginnings to the home of this magnificent Modernist building. Through photographs, architectural drawings and other original documents from the University and Library collections the display explores the Western Bank Library from concept, to construction and opening. Central to the display and to mark this special occasion is a commissioned replica model of the original 1953 architectural vision for the site, constructed by students Tom Hudson and Phil Etchells.

For more information take a look at the library website.

Lending Services Survey Results

You may remember that during April 2010 we were asking students to complete a short lending services survey to gather feedback on some of the changes introduced last year. We had a fantastic 1140 responses submitted and the results are now available online.

Many thanks for your contributions.
