An extensive refurbishment of the J Robin Warren Library - located at the QEII Medical Centre - commenced in early 2017. The revitalisation of the J Robin Warren 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 J Robin Warren 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.
