We’re pleased to announce that as of today the Dentistry Library has re-opened as a learning and study space after minor refurbishment works.
By Crystal Choi
The new refurbished space will have 1 bookable group room, a new relaxed study space and a study space for group and individual study, as well as ICT (VDI) computers and printing/scanning/photocopying facilities. Additional drop-down power has also been installed.
Additional furniture in the form of some new seating (couches and chairs) and new tables will be installed in 2 weeks.
The new space will initially be open from 9am-5pm, Monday –Friday. When swipe access is installed, opening hours will be extended.
All access to the space will be via campus card, and all current Dentistry students, academics and staff at the University will have access on their card, once swipe access has been installed.
Clients can initially access library support from staff during opening hours, who will be on hand to answer any queries, orientate students to the space, take returns and check out any holds/document delivery or 2 hour items.
Will there be a librarian?
Research assistance and support is ongoing. Academic Liaison Librarian, Lajos Bordas continues to be available for research appointments at the Dental Hospital, Westmead Campus and Camperdown Campus. In addition, the Chat Now instant messaging service will also continue to be available. In future, PLAs will be available in the space for support and assistance.
We are still waiting for our HAL-4 Smartlocker and HAL-5 Libcabinet to arrive, so we’ll keep you posted on their arrival. In the meantime, clients can see staff in the space for assistance.
