An extensive refurbishment of the Medical and Dental Library - located at the QEII Medical Centre - commenced in early 2017. The revitalisation of the Medical and Dental Library will provide greater emphasis on collaborative study and expanded e-learning capability. Student input has been integral to this redevelopment.
This project will see all three levels of the Medical and Dental Library stripped back and completely refurbished. With the nature of student study and learning changing, there is greater focus on collaborative study supported with extensive e-learning components.
Libraries are evolving to support these opportunities and the refurbishment will help achieve this goal. The new design will introduce:
- Library for all users - future, current and past students, researchers, academics, alumni and the community
- High quality education and learning environment, including:
- 70 seats of quiet study areas on the upper study level
- 120 seat e-learning suite and a 20 station computer laboratory
- bookable meeting spaces
- collection of high use print books and journals.
- Extensive wi-fi coverage
Hames Sharley who are the original architects of the Medical and Dental Library were appointed by the University in 2016.
