Dan Perjovschi – visiting artist

The Library was lucky enough to be visited by Dan Perjovschi over the weekend and he's left his mark on the North Stairwell.

He's used the subject areas and collections that can be found on Floors 3, 4 and 5 of the Library to create his images.

This extension floor now contains 2 separate silent study rooms that are fully enclosed with air management systems to ensure a peaceful and comfortable study environment.  It also houses 3 stacks of mobile shelving containing all the Library's microfilm, the Science journals and the Science oversize books.

There are some images of the floor in the Floor 2 Extension Gallery.

We apologise for the inconvenience that this will cause but we do have disposable ear plugs available or a small supply of ear defenders that can be borrowed.  Please ask at the Floor 3 Service Desk.
