Library and IT services – Autumn term update

More Library Study Space

You’ll be pleased to know that while you have been away we have been busy creating 140 new study spaces in Block D of the Templeman Library by converting office space on Floors 2 and 3. The toilets in Block D are also getting a make-over and will be gender neutral! The work in D Block will be completed before the end of the year.

Easier finding and checking out of books

We have been working on LibrarySearch, making it easier to:

  • see if a book is available
  • see where it is held
  • request it from another University of Kent library

When the same book is held by the Templeman, Drill Hall or Tonbridge Centre Library we have combined them into one entry!

DVDs have moved

The DVD collection has moved location, but it is still on the ground floor of Block B. This is a result of consultation with the School of Arts about how best to place the DVDs and viewing stations to enable collection-related academic activities throughout the year. Watch this space for some talks about our film collection in the Autumn Term.

Study Hubs

There have been some exciting changes to Study Hubs over the Summer. We’ve got a new study space opening in the Park Wood Student Hub complex, Darwin’s small PC room had a make-over and Senate will be opening as a dedicated Postgraduate study hub!

Individual Study Carrels

Don’t forget, if you are a final year undergraduate or postgraduate, you can rent an individual study carrel in the Templeman Library.  Study in your own guaranteed space for a small fee. Choose from a daily, monthly or quarterly rented space. Day Carrels look over the Café space in B Block and monthly/quarterly carrels are located in B and D Blocks.

Ask at the welcome desk if you would like to see what one looks like.
