As the University launched its 50th anniversary celebrations on 1 October, the Templeman Library development project celebrated a key milestone: the highest building point was reached.

Denise Everitt, Deputy Vice-Chancellor performed the symbolic Topping Out ceremony with John Sotillo, Director of Information Services, by tightening a bolt on the new Library Wing’s roof. This was followed by a tour of the building.
