In order to continue to expand study space for students, we are clearing space occupied by bound journals on the 1st floor. These are older journals that we previously had bound together and placed on our shelves. Now, most of these journals are more easily accessible online through our vast collection of databases. This is made possible through a significant university investment over the last several years. A small collection of journals will be kept and moved to the 2nd floor later this spring.
We are clearing close to 4,000 shelves of bound journals for this project. That means over 7,000 sq. feet of new study space for students!
Our work begins now, and the new study area will be available by Fall 2020.
