National Library of Wales - lecture theatre

Auditorium DRWM
The Visitor Experience

The National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth, is one of the great repositories within the United Kingdom of all types of material including both still and moving images, sound, manuscripts, archives, maps, printed books and other print based artefacts. The Library houses the National Collection of Sound and Moving Images for Wales. This current phase of development is to focus on improvements to public access, educational provision, conservation and visitor facilities catering for the needs of the widest spread of interest, from those wishing to learn more in a lecture, video or exhibition context to those using the Reading Rooms.

ACT Consultant Services were engaged to provide design and consultancy services for the lecture theatre and the specialist audio-visual equipment and services with particular attention being paid to the library's presentation of sensitive materials, archive film and use of video conferencing. The 'Drwm' (lecture theatre) and sensitive materials display area were opened on 7 June 2004.
