Why is the Library such a popular place for students to come and study? Perhaps it is because a space between home and work fosters spontaneous encounters, critical conversations and new friendships forged in the blaze of relaxed industry. Ray Oldenburg suggested such spaces such as the Library are defined less by place, although it is still one of the largest and most diverse open access study spaces on campus, as the way studying in the Library encourages serendipity, finding unusual books, resources, chance encounters with others and engaging in unhindered interchanges that can open doors and take you in new directions.

We are always looking for ways to raise our standards, serve you better, and develop our services to meet your needs more effectively.  This year, we have reviewed our performance measurement tools and published a suite of new Library Service Standards that ensure we always deliver on those things that matter the most to you.
