November 2013 update on the Pilkington Library now completed;

Still busy but more vibrant and lighter, this large open plan area has taken over space where bookcases used to dominate IMG_0944

This is the new helpdesk which is to the side as opposed to the dominant location where the staircase now sitsIMG_0942

This is one of a number of student pods that are becoming ubiquitous at universities. Good to see the Humanscale seating being used extensively as it is regarded as a sustainable range of environmentally credible products.

This is part of the brand new 4th floor, which has been opened up from a mass of corridors and offices, into an airy bright space for informal studyIMG_0935

Some may not agree with the range of vibrant colours used for seating but it is clearly a popular floor

The attention to detail is impressive, even the waste bins mirror each other both sides of the new glazed partitionsIMG_0926
