The Albert Sloman Library, opened in 1967, is one of the founding buildings of the University of Essex and is named after the university’s first Vice Chancellor. In 2015, a new extension was opened to meet the needs of a growing student population and to provide more tech enabled study spaces along with purpose designed space for postgraduate study and special collections. Since then additional refurbishments of the ground floor lobby and Library Reading Room have further enhanced facilities for library users and have helped facilitate better student engagement and transformed perceptions of the library service across the university. Both the Library extension and the adjacent Silberrad Student Centre were designed by Patel Taylor architects, and the two buildings were jointly awarded the RIBA East Building of the Year award in 2016.
