From the suggestion box…

By Curtin Library 9 March 2010 News & events Comments off

Could you please build a disabled toilet (wheelchairs). From level 5.

The library responds…

Thank you for your suggestion. Over the recent summer break the toilets on level 5 of Robertson Library were upgraded and a new toilet with wheelchair facilities was installed. It is located near the lifts in the foyer on level 5.  For other improvements over the summer check out our post on What’s new in the library.

What's new in the library?

By Curtin Library 24 February 2010 News & events Comments off

Robertson Library has had a mini makeover during the summer break. Improvements are still under way, but you will already see a difference on levels 2, 3 and 5.


 On level 2 we have:

  • replaced the glass partitioning with a new half-glazed wall;
  • provided additional casual seating with new bench seats and table tops planned for installation along the wall;
  • plans to add booth-style seating and tables in the group study area to reflect those already in the iZone;
  • removed old carrels and will replace them with new, larger carrels providing power to make it simpler to plug in your laptop or other mobile device;
  • painted and recarpeted some areas.

 On level 3 we have:

  • relocated the computer workstations from level 2, replacing some older carrels;
  • enhanced computer access with the addition of three new workstations and computers to one of the existing ‘pods’;
  • plans to add newer style carrels with individual power points.

 On level 5 we have:

  • added four new group study rooms with plentiful power points for you to plug in mobile devices;
  • plans to install a Smartboard in one of the bookable group study rooms;
  • put in new, larger tables in some of the other group study rooms;
  • completely renovated the toilets near the lifts;
  • installed a new unisex disabled toilet.   

 So come into the library soon and check out our makeover progress.
