Adsetts and Collegiate Learning Centres
The Adsetts Learning Centre is at the heart of the Sheffield Hallam campus. It is a very large facility and when it was conceived in the early 1990’s, it was the groundbreaking university library in the UK. Partly due to its enormous popularity and intensive use over 15 years, is now tired and in need of major renovation.
There are seven floors, five of which are interconnected and available to students and the public, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The first phase of the rejuvenation work has majored on improving the environment, providing new types of spaces that encourage group work and familiarity with presentation techniques. The helpdesk is also a significant part of the student service.
