- Room 130 (formerly the Media Services Area) has been transformed into “The Studios.” If you have not stopped in to take a look at this exciting new space, please do. The main Open Studios space is open all hours that the library is open, and a service desk in the space is staffed many of those hours. Learn more about The Studios.
- The new glass-walled study rooms on the first floor are already very popular with students. Many student groups are using the side walls of the rooms, which double as whiteboards, to work on math problems and more. Whiteboard markers are available for loan at the Main Desk.
- Room 249 (formerly the Microforms area) is closed to the public as it is transformed into an exciting experimental classroom environment. A new emergency exit doorway has been created between the east wall of the room and the hallway, and another doorway has been created on the north end of the space in order to enclose the room. Planning continues on the design of the space.
- New wayfinding signage has been placed around the building to help users navigate spaces old and new. We also continue to update our public floor maps. Given all of the recent changes, please let us know when you need help locating something.
The Cline Library Learning Spaces Project is transforming library spaces to meet student needs. We are increasing the number of seats and collaborative spaces on the first floor, and creating a 50-60 seat experimental classroom and a digital media lab. Whether students work solo or in a group, use the library’s computing devices or their own, create a classic paper or produce ashort film, these spaces will enable them to meet – and exceed – the expectations that move them forward to graduation. The Learning Spaces Project Fact Sheet provides a more complete overview of the project.
