Westmead Hospital Library designs near completion

Library Manager Linda looks at proposed colour palettes

With input received from staff and students, the design of the new Westmead Hospital Library is set to be finalised in the coming days.

The library is being upgraded by the University of Sydney, in partnership with the Western Sydney Local Health District, as part of the Westmead Redevelopment project.

It will be upgraded to a highly engaging teaching and learning environment, and will offer technology-enhanced individual and group study spaces, purpose-built rooms for student and medical staff examinations, and facilities for education, training and research activities.

In preparation for refurbishment, many pre-loved texts need a new home. Drop by the library on level 2 in the Westmead Education and Conference Centre (WECC) to pick up a book for $1, or fill a bag for $5.

The library will temporarily close its doors from 1pm on Friday, 10 November, 2017.

From this date, students and staff participating in education, training and research activities are encouraged to use WECC level 1, which has recently been upgraded to offer contemporary teaching and learning spaces.

If you have any questions, please contact Westmead Hospital library manager. Linda's contact details are in Project Update 133 (opens a PDF - go to page 6).
