UCC Library is making use of the quieter summer months to develop exciting new spaces for our users. Beginning week June 27th for a period of 6 weeks, works will commence on the old section of the Boole Library Building on Q+1, Q+2 and Q+3. There’ll be some noise and disruption in the short-term, but it will be worth it once complete!
Works will commence to create a dedicated technology-rich Digital Scholarship Studio, containing 18 high-specification computer workstations for students, staff and researchers engaging in scholarly activities using a variety of media formats. The Studio will also contain a collaborative meeting space and 3D printing and scanning facilities.
Works will commence on repurposing existing staff space. No publicly accessible study spaces will be affected in this.
Works will commence to add an additional 37 quiet study spaces to Q+3, with power plugs at each desk.
While these works are being carried out, you may wish to use the New Reading Rooms on Q-1, Q+1, Q+2 and Q+3, the Quad Reading Room or the Creative Zone on Q floor for quieter study spaces. Access to the physical collections is unimpeded during the works.
The new spaces and services will be unveiled in time for semester 1 of the new academic year. Further updates will be provided as the works progress.
