New collaborative study area in the Bill Bryson Library

(23 January 2019)

The newly refurbished collaborative study area is ready in the “Cathedral view” area on Level 1 of the Bill Bryson Library. It is designed to promote group work and includes some unique features that will make it easier for you to work collaboratively. For further details about the variety of study spaces offered in the Bill Bryson Library, please visit the website.

If you have to work on a group project or simply want to study independently alongside others, the collaborative study area is the place for you. Talking is permitted in this area (but please be always considerate of other users) and you are welcome to move tables and chairs to suit your group size and needs. Several moveable whiteboards are available for you to use to capture group discussion. Two study nooks have been installed at the two ends of the collaborative study area.
