What do we want?

We build an environment with many electrical outlets, energy efficient lighting, good ventilation, different types of study places, easy-to-access self-service, but also good support if you need help.

Our plans and solutions have been inspired by feedback and suggestions from students, the university's educational idea, other university environments and what the research says about libraries as a learning environment.

We want to create a library that works for different educational methods, academic approaches and professional skills, an environment where everyone feels welcome and inspired.
