Formatted Abstract/Summary
In 1998, the University of Queensland’s Undergraduate Library and Central Library amalgamated into a single Social Sciences and Humanities Library, and work commenced on this project in August 1997. To overcome the problem of the separate buildings, a single-storey structure called ‘The Link’ was built to connect them, without seriously detracting from the heritage-listed façade of the Duhig Building. The refurbishment included Fryer Library on Level 4 and the UQ Graduate School Study Centre on Level 4 and Level 5 of the Duhig Building.

The design brief for the refurbishment focused on making facilities easier to use and attractive, and providing a window on the world of knowledge designed around client access and use of real and virtual information resources. The refurbishment of the building won a Highly Commended Award in the 1999 Royal Australian Institute of Architects Association awards. A major architectural achievement, the Library Building seamlessly combines two formerly separate buildings into one by means of a "link" construction. The $10 million refurbishment was designed by Hamilton Wilson of Wilson Architects and constructed by Barclay Mowlem. The Honourable Peter Beattie MLA, then Queensland Premier, opened the library officially, in October 1998.
