The University of Johannesburg Library & Information Centre has embark on a various projects this year: One Book One Library (read now, discuss in September), organizing a Conference in 2010 – “The Future is NOW: New Roles and relationships for Academic Libraries“, etc.
One of them involve providing more sitting space for students in the Library. At Kingsway Library the first 30 new tables were added (25/8/09) on Level 2, next to the Sciences, Health Sciences & Engineering Book Collections. Students have now 81 sitting tables on that floor.
More sitting spaces will be available in 2010.
Also coming in early 2010 is the new Library Computer Training room, with 50 seats and 26 computers (currently we have 13 computers). Will keep you posted….
