New changes in the Library!

Posted on: Tuesday, June 1, 2010 - 10:00am

Phase 2 of the STC co-location project in the library is currently under construction, adding audio/video editing booths and a practice presentation room at the west end of HH 218, where the copy machines were formerly stationed. These will be operationally connected with the Student Technology Center, and another step on the way to the learning commons.

General university computer lab HH 155 will be relocated to HH 233 over Spring Quarter. The lab closed at the end of winter quarter and will reopen in its new space for the beginning of Summer Quarter. The collections that are currently in HH 233 have been relocated to Wilson 4-West.

The Modern & Classical Language lab has moved into a temporary space created in the eastern third of Wilson Library 280 (Wilson 2-North). We hope to have this space completed so that the MCL furniture & equipment can be moved over the March intersession. While the MCL permanent lab is slated to eventually be located in the renovated Miller Hall, it will not be available until some time during the 2011-2012 academic year.

More Compact shelving
The north end of Wilson 1-East now has additional compact shelving. The room is currently closed for construction. Paging for materials there is handled by the Haggard Circulation Services desk.

As with previous projects, I will provide periodic updates as to progress. Please contact me at any time with your questions, concerns and comments. Thanks.
