The look and feel of UOS’s Main Library has changed with a new lounge called “Book-Topia” on the 1st floor of the library, as a community lounge for students. To celebrate the renewal, an opening ceremony was held on March 19.

Remodeling of the first-floor lobby progressed in two phases. First, UOS improved the decrepit library lobby to make it a safe and pleasant place. Then, the librarian office was moved to the 4th floor, and public rooms were expanded in the resulting space. Now, as a result, there is single-person study zone, group study zone, information zone, and community zone.

Book-Topia opens for 24 hours. There are 19 window seats in the single-person study zone and 13 seats in the information zone. In the group study zone, there are six one-person study rooms and four open-study rooms. The one-person study room has a glass partition, and the open-study rooms can accommodate eight people each. To use study zones and information zone, students have to make reservations using a kiosk or mobile application. They can use window and computer seats for two hours. Usage can be extended one time for two additional hours. Students can use group-study zones for a maximum of four hours. The chief librarian, Jung Byung-wook, said he hopes that students communicate with each other while contributing to the public good by following the library rules.

A cafe has also been built in the community zone with an area where students can rest. The cafe is a result of student opinion based on a survey conducted last year by the 2017 Student Council. In the survey, 42.6 percent agreed about launching such a cafe, while 28.9 percent did not agree, and 28.5 percent wanted both a cafe and a convenience store in the 1st floor. The cafe is open from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
