Preparations Underway for Transition to Sequence Three
Libraries and iTech employees, with plenty of support from Physical Plant, are hard at work getting ready for next week’s “flip” and the transition to the next sequence of the renovation project.
If you’ve walked through the north end of the Learning Commons recently, you’ve noticed the furniture is slowly being disassembled and moved away. We are relocating as much furniture as possible within the building to continue to provide seating for our valued library patrons.
- The two treadmill desks, generously provided by the Health Is Golden campaign in 2016, have been moved to the windows at the south end of the Learning Commons.
- Two of the Wēpa print stations were moved toward the south end of the Learning Commons a few weeks ago and others will soon join them.
- The Scannx scanning equipment has been relocated and may now be found near the large group study room (LIB 120) in approximately the southwest corner of the Learning Commons.
- The computers designated for community users have been moved from the northwest corner of the Learning Commons toward the southeast side of the room.
The most significant change is scheduled to take place next week. When students return from Mardi Gras Break on Wednesday, February 26, the north entrance will be closed and everyone will enter and exit the building using the south entrance. The Circulation and Reserves Desk will have moved from north to south, along with the Research and Technical Assistance Desk. And the iTech Help Desk will close its lobby location and reopen in the Curriculum Materials Center (LIB 109J).
We appreciate your consideration as we make these adjustments to our spaces and services, while striving to minimize the disruptions. If you have any questions, please contact Cook Library at 601.266.4241.
