“Change Sucks!”

The Kelburn Central Library opened its new entrance last week, which is accessible on Level One after walking through the Louis’ cafe.

The old entrance into the second floor is now closed for construction, and a new ‘main’ entrance is expected to open on that level, leading into the campus hub development which will open in February next year.

The new entrance is not currently fitted with a permanent librarian’s desk, but does feature several self-checkout kiosks.

The installation of kiosks are part of an attempt to decrease the reliance on librarians.

“Bring back the librarians!” One student commented on a whiteboard near the entrance, on which students are asked to provide feedback, while another lamented “change sucks!”

A ‘Vic Info’ desk has also been established next to the entrance, the first of several desks to be established around campuses, assisting students for small issues, and offering direction towards the right faculty or office for further help.

In-depth coverage of the campus hub project will be published in next week’s issue of Salient.
