Renovation Update – Feb. 2015

The library renovations are ongoing, and there will be many group and individual study spaces added for students. We decided to reopen the library before renovations are complete in to provide students access to what usable space and seating we have at this time.

Please bear with us. You’re going to be happy with what’s coming.

The fourth and fifth floors of the library will have new private student study carrels, around 50 semi-private study cubicles, and close to a dozen new group study cubicles, in addition to tables, soft seating areas, and more. For example:

Fourth Floor

  • Quiet Student Study Areas
  • Private study cubicles
  • Easy seating
  • Tables
  • and more…

Fifth Floor

  • Collaborative Student Study Areas
  • Cafe style study booths
  • Student break area (with vending machines)
  • Groups study pods
  • Soft seating
  • Tables
  • Charging stations for your devices
  • Lockers
  • and more…

All renovations should be complete by this summer.

We appreciate your patience. Thanks!

Library Website Survey

The Health Sciences Library is redesigning a user-centered library website. In order to build a website focusing on your needs, we need your input about the current website and suggestions about the future one.

Please take the survey and also consider participating in testing the new website when it is available for preview, probably in the summer or fall. We hope to launch our new website as soon as it is tested by users and approved by the University.
