The newly renovated Library will open in a few weeks! In the renovated space there will be many more Group Study Rooms, the new Lizard Lounge (an academic space for grad students and faculty to host  social/academic events such as TED Talks, poetry readings, book talks, etc.) a GIGA Lab  for students using high end computing, a Seminar Room in Special Collections, a Technology Sandbox showcasing new Information Technology items,  and a FAB Lab for 3D printing along with other spaces.  For library staff there is additional good news. Three departments, totaling 13  library employees, have been working off campus since late 2013 because of space constraints during construction. We are looking forward to welcoming them back to the Library this fall!

We have various  opening events planned along with a formal dedication in the coming months. Please check this section in the weeks to come for a listing of the events. We hope to see you there!
