The completed new library was fully opened to CWNU students and Changwon citizens with the start of the new semester. The new library generally consists of two parts. One is reading rooms where you can study independently, and the other is reference rooms where you can find and read books. And other facilities such as a small mart, café and common room are increased to devise ways to make life more convenient for the patrons. So let’s figure out how to use the new library.
In the reading rooms, patrons can study anything they want. At the old library, these rooms were located on the third and fourth floors. In the new library, reading rooms are located on all floors and have more seats than the old reading rooms. Reading rooms are study facilities that anyone can use freely, so no one needs to disturb others’ learning. When you want to study there, just sit down anywhere you want. Don’t forget that! Reading rooms are a public facility.
The number of study rooms is increased from one to eleven. Increasing study rooms is good news to students who worry about the absence of suitable study space. They formed study groups but they couldn’t meet, or had to meet in an unsuitable place. Study rooms in the new library are three kinds, designed for six, eight and ten people. When you want to use it, just apply on- or off-line in advance at the new library. If nobody is using a room, you can use it immediately. Don’t forget that when we use the university’s facilities, we must have a sense of responsibility.
Reference rooms at the old library were hidden, so some people couldn’t find them. But the new library is divided into two parts with a reading section and a reference section, so all patrons can find what they want. The reference section located on the right side of the new library consists of periodical publications on the second floor, reference room number one on the third floor and reference room number two on the fourth floor. When you want to borrow books, just use the borrowing machine or go to the borrow/return counter with your student ID. And remember, the books are our library’s most precious assets.
You can obtain more detailed information on the new library’s web site (http://lib.changwon.ac.kr/) or at the information center on the right side of the first floor of the library.
