Information about the Beanland Library at RMIT Vietnam Saigon South campus
The facility, at the University's Saigon South campus, is called the Beanland Library and Learning Commons, in honour of a former leader of RMIT University in Australia, Professor David Beanland, one of the people responsible for RMIT coming to Vietnam.
The library features a greatly expanded book collection, along with better access to many electronic databases from around the world, and a range of different spaces to allow for different kinds of study.
The library features areas where discussion in small groups is encouraged. Other parts are designed for teaching and instruction by librarians specially trained in different study programs. Librarians will also conduct library tours to help new students make the best use of the latest facilities.
Many services offered across the university – such as support to improve student learning skills – will now be accessible from within the library itself.
In opening the Beanland Library and Learning Commons, the visiting Vice Chancellor and President of RMIT University, Professor Margaret Gardner, said the facility demonstrated "a fundamental rethinking of what the library of the 21st century needs to be".
Professor Gardner said the facility was the result of intense study and research into 21st century library needs, and RMIT hoped the 20 billion VND new facility might also be a useful "demonstration centre" to help other educational institutions interested in modernising their library facilities.
