Students and staff to get a newly refurbished library

From the turn of the year, students and staff at Health will be able to start using newly refurbished facilities. This takes place when AU Library, Health Science opens its doors to more study spaces and a modernised study and work environment in the Victor Albeck Building.

In order to meet the increasing demand for student places, the health science library in the Victor Albeck Building (VAB) is now being renovated. This means that students and staff can begin using 50 new study places and a modern library from the start of the New Year.

Both student and PhD student representatives have been involved in the project, so that the needs and priorities of the users form the basis for the new layout in VAB. A layout that focuses on a main thread across premises, together with coherence and recognisability.

The new premises will be ready on Monday, 13 January 2014, when AU Library, Health Science invites you to experience a newly equipped building, with more space and increased opportunities for both students and staff.

Read more about the renovation and the new study facilities in ”Renovation of VAB” (Danish, PDF).
