The University of Queensland Library
The University of Queensland Library comprises 14 service delivery branches as well as a number of service support units. This project looks at what happens in one day at four of the branch libraries, the Social Sciences and Humanities Library, the Dorothy Hill Physical Sciences and Engineering Library, the Biological Sciences Library and the UQ Ipswich Campus Library. These libraries serve obvious disciplinary cohorts. Two of the Libraries are products of ‘next generation’ design concepts (Ipswich and Biological Sciences), and two await planned refurbishment (SS&H and DHPSE).
