Thank you for taking the time to comment.

I think your idea to have more detailed floor plans is very good and we are trying to find solutions which will make it easier for people to find books and material in the Library. We are working on the current floor plans at the moment and will be updating these shortly. However, we don’t have a lot of detail on these plans because our stock moves about quite a lot. We have been moving stock frequently in the past few months (moving the reference collection from Level 2 to Level 4, classmarks Q-Z are now also on Level 4, PS-PZ have moved further down the shelves). In the next couple of years we are also looking at more substantial stock moves as we are planning further redevelopment of the Main Library. As the current floor plans and directories are printed, they become out of date very quickly!

I am in the process of looking at alternative formats for this signage, including digital solutions and slatted directories which would allow us to replace and move information. I do appreciate it can be a bit bewildering but we are working on making improvements.

Many thanks again,
