There is one large seminar room and two smaller meeting rooms on level 1. To get to the large seminar room (the Horton), exit the lift lobby through the door on the left-hand side. Turn left, the room is through the double doors on the right-hand side. There is a large table with moveable chairs, and the table is a suitable height for wheelchair users. There is a hearing support system available.
The smaller meeting rooms are at the right-hand side of the enquiries area. This is the large space directly opposite the lift lobby. These rooms, (the Sassoon and the Bon Christiano), both accessed through single doors. While these are smaller than the main room, the setup is identical, with display screens, a large central table and moveable chairs (although there is less space available around the edge of the room). There is hearing support available in both of these rooms, and the rooms are well soundproofed despite one wall being sheet glass. In some cases these spaces can be booked by students with disabilities for private study. Please contact the library staff for further details.
The Digital Study Centre is also located on Level 1. Leave the lift lobby through the door on the left and turn right. Turn right at the end of the corridor, and the study centre is the second door on your left-hand side. The majority of this room is taken up with a row of desks and moveable office chairs, but there is still space to move around the edge of the room, and there are height adjustable desks available.
The Visiting Scholars Centre (Centre for the Study of the Book) is not generally open to readers, but exception can be made for events and seminars, as well as to readers who have applied to work there. The main area used for seminars there are two large tables with movable chairs. The tables are a good height for people using wheelchairs, and there is plenty of space to move around the edge of the room. There is no hearing support system available.
