Burwood review

• Central issues desk
• Lots of space
OPACs plus 6 other computers for internet and catalogue searching
• Half wall office for librarian looked out on library but librarian could leave work in progress
• Librarians desk facing computer screens for monitoring use
• Teacher resources separate but near to library (T’s responsibility) - prefer T resources closer to or part of main library
• Area with screen off the side of the library
• Wonderful use of colour
• Lots of glass windows
• Glass doors led to outside reading area
• Large entranceway
• Shoe cupboards
Search machines were are chest height which would help ‘flow’ of people.

I like the idea of search OPACS at chest height to help flow of foot traffic.... I wonder if having this plus some kind of steps for smaller kids would help?
