Brynmor Jones Library Redevelopment update - 2nd floor and postgraduate lounge

·         Library and Learning Innovation are delighted to announce the opening of the 2nd floor of the tower. This floor contains the new postgraduate research lounge, the law books, PC desks and soft seating as well as an information point.  The ‘bridge’ which links the tower and east building is due to open early June.  This is the first time the two buildings making up the Brynmor Jones Library will ever have been connected at this level.

·         The postgraduate research lounge is intended for the exclusive use of research students, and door access will be controlled.  It contains some 70 study spaces, mostly formal desks, 24 of which have fixed PCs.  All spaces have individual power sockets and access to the wireless network.  There are also dedicated printing, photocopying and scanning facilities, large pigeon holes for temporary storage of belongings, and a notice board for student use.  As in all parts of the building above the ground floor, cold bottled drinks only are permitted in this area.
