The newly renovated UNIST Library finally opened its doors to the UNIST community.
A ceremony to mark the completion of renovations took place in the 1F lobby of UNIST Library on September 2, 2022. The ceremony has been attended by President Yong Hoon Lee, Vice Mayor Hyo Dae Ahn of Economic Affairs of Ulsan, and President Byung-seok Yoon of SK Gas Co., Ltd.
Local citizens and the members of UNIST who attended the ceremony also welcomed the birth of UNIST’s new attraction.
The new library consists of three spaces: Jigwanseoga (Humanities Zone), CALIU (Resting Zone), and an experience space (Book Curation & Collaboration Zone) that are open to any local citizen to stop by for lectures or hold meetings.
“The new space, combining reading and resting areas suits well with the MZ generation and their love of cafe culture,” says Dong Min Kim (School of Energy and Chemical Engineering). “I have never found a space like this before. I would love to share this space with my friends and acquaintances,” says Pallavi Singh (Department of Biomedical Engineering).
“I especially like the fact that the 1F is open to any local citizen to stop by for lectures or hold meetings,” says KyeongJu Min, a resident of Eonyang-eup. “I’m really grateful that UNIST has brought inclusive, welcoming spaces to campus.”
