When I found out I had to do a week of work experience as part of sixth form, I wasn’t really looking forward to it. Even though I was thinking about working in a library, and University of Warwick Library especially seemed interesting (not to mention convenient location-wise), I worried a lot about not knowing enough about the library to get anywhere or do anything. That fear was amplified by the fact that pretty soon, I’m going to be applying to unis, and I know absolutely nothing about them. If you’re reading this article, you might be in the same boat, so here are 5 key lessons I learnt at University of Warwick Library.

In response to student feedback, a ~£4m project to refurbish the main Library took place over summer 2021.
The project focused on Floors 1 & 2 of the main Library building, updating them to create a contemporary, comfortable, work-inspiring environment. The two floors were reconfigured to provide over 10% more study spaces, and completely new spaces were developed to facilitate new approaches to teaching and learning, and support student wellbeing. On a practical note, the toilet facilities on Floors 1 to 5 were also updated and refurbished, and essential maintenance works were carried out throughout the building. Find out why the refurb project was so important, and what improvements have been made…
