The redesigned Trevithick Library at Cardiff University has been declared officially open by Honorary Fellow Carol Vorderman.
At a special launch event held in the Library on 25 March 2009, speakers included Professor Malcolm Jones, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Estates, and Janet Peters, University Librarian. Janet is pictured with Carol Vorderman.
Speaking at the event, Carol said: “It is fantastic to see investment in modern facilities which not only look stylish but are also practical and really cater for the needs of students and inspire research and learning.”
As part of Information Services’ Library Review, the Trevithick Library has been completely redesigned to enhance the student experience. It now offers a range of modern environments which meet changing technological and curriculum needs.
Key elements of the new design include a research lounge, open study spaces, group study rooms, wireless networks and a modern ‘computer bar’. To allow students total flexibility, self-service book issue and return units and an external 24 hour book return chute have also been installed.
