Over the next few weeks you will see some changes in the library as we prepare for construction this summer. The library will be open and we’ll do our best to notify the campus when there will be excess dust or noise. We expect construction to run May 5 through August 1.
On the Main Entrance Level …
On Wed. May 5 the south side of the main entrance level will be closed for construction in this zone. Features coming this summer include:
• Class of 1970 café
• a collaborative area with more computers and tables
• New helpdesk for computer and technology support
• Printing, photocopying, and document scanning area
Around May 10, the Academic Technology Center’s Teaching, Technology and Learning staff will relocate temporarily to room 206. On May 6 the Helpdesk staff will move temporarily into room 303, the Gordon Conference Room while their prior location in Fuller is renovated for the Computer Science department. By August, we expect the ATC/TTL group and Helpdesk will move to their permanent locations, the main entrance level of the library, bringing information and technology services desk into one convenient location.
On the First Floor …
The Multimedia Lab will be closed for around two weeks beginning Sunday May 9th. Data/power will be installed in the center of the lab making it more accessible to students in this space and furniture will be installed that will facilitate collaboration and group projects. There will be access to Labs A & B during these few weeks but keep mind when scheduling it may be noisy.
On the Third Floor …
Some work will be happening this summer to provide more power/data outlets for library users. Stay tuned for details.
