More Library Renovations Planned for Summer

The Law Library, specifically the Sanders Reading Room and the Circulation and Reference areas have undergone significant changes in the last couple of years. Check here for more information and before and after pictures.

Now it's time to tackle the Annex. The Annex will be carpeted and painted, this includes the two computer rooms. We've also ordered new chairs for the computer rooms. As you might imagine carpeting a library involves taking the books off the shelves, moving the shelves, and then putting everything back again. The project is expected to take about six week beginning in July and continuing until just before school starts.

We've long wanted to bring all of our microform cabinets together. Currently they're spread throughout the annex and block the free-standing staircases. To do this we'll be removing the carrels on the first floor of the Annex. You can see them in the picture above. Additional carrels and apron tables will be located throughout the Annex. We're also adding a few seats in the basement (after we clean and paint). Here are some before shots of the basement.

The carrels on the balcony are being spruced up. They've already been rewired so the outlet is above the desktop. The drawers and runners have been removed for knee room and we've put comfortable, rolling chairs in each carrel. They'll also be painted. What this means for you is a cleaner, more attractive study and research environment with no loss of total seating capacity.
