       a.    ample storage, a new information desk,  and lockable                                       cupboards;
       b.    a comfortable seating where staff could relax and read                                   newspapers, journals etc.
               as well as a workspace (desk) where staff and researchers can                   work on their laptops;
       c.     a new custom designed newspaper stand, new furniture, new                     carpeting and flooring;
