The next visit on the tour was Murray Edwards College Library, which is in a Grade 2* listed building. This had quite a different feel with its cavernous design and copious concrete. The librarian here gave us the task of evaluating the library and coming up with what we thought was not welcoming or helpful to students and how we thought that it could be improved. The college is planning a refurbishment of the library and it was very interesting to discuss in a group what we thought could be changed and how we could address the issues which arise with such changes. I think that the alterations will make the impact of the library much better and provide a more natural flow round the library.
