With a portion of the Library’s first floor blocked off by CAUTION tape or plastic sheeting, and construction sounds emanating from behind the barriers, many of our patrons probably wondered what we were up to during the summer of 2011. All was revealed when the new space reopened early last year. The renovation added 10 study rooms and 52 study carrels to the first floor.
The project was part of an institution-wide renovation which included moving several functions to the adjacent Oak Grove building, while adding study space, as well as career services and academic success counselors. In addition, Law Review was relocated from the library to its own expanded suite on the 4th floor.
Even with the additional study spaces and more people, the first floor is still the Library’s QUIET ZONE — no cell phones, no food, no chatting. Sounds like no fun! But don’t you remember those times when YOU needed the QUIET ZONE to focus on prepping for that class? Ah, those were the days!
