Creating a Brand New Library

The Health Sciences Library is embarking on an exciting renovation projected to start Spring 2023. Over the next several months, we will work with architects to design a more functional and accessible modern library. This library redesign will focus on library spaces for student work including improved access to technology, collaborative and individual study spaces, and innovative furniture concepts that are appropriate for today’s technology needs. We are working to ensure that our new, modern library will meet the needs of our community as well as make sure your needs are met during any building closure. Stay tuned for updates and please submit any feedback below.

Library Renovation

A. The first and third floor of the current library space will be repurposed into offices for the hospital, leaving the main floor of the library in need of a major upgrade to make the best use of available space. With the renovation, we can build new study rooms, add more outlets, and improve our collection layout to create a variety of useful spaces for students to use. These changes will modernize the library as well as increase accessibility.

A. While we do not have a clear design this early in the planning process, we know the renovated library space to be more modern and include an array of useful study spaces for students.
