A well-designed, stimulating and vibrant space is one of the most important services that an academic library can offer.
Recent studies have produced clear evidence that campus libraries are being used more, not less as user needs are changing. Students continue to want study spaces, but their expectations are different. They want collaborative group space to support new ways of learning, silent areas for revision, and chill out areas and cafes to allow them to spend all day, and sometimes all night in the building. All this, as well as easy access to power to recharge mobile devices.
We are able to offer a wide variety of solutions for creating the best possible space for your needs and work closely with librarians, estates managers, architects and designers to achieve this.

'Unsurprisingly the feedback we are getting about AGLC from everyone at the University is incredibly positive! However, most importantly, the students absolutely love it. On the first days of opening the speed gates recorded 2,735 entrances by 2,174 unique users. Those numbers are now up to 4,000 unique users so it looks like word is getting around quickly.'
