Library to get upgraded learning spaces, will close briefly

Cline Library soon will be unveiling its Learning Spaces Project and will close from Aug. 8-12 for renovation work.

Students and faculty who have immediate needs during the closure should use Ask a Librarian to contact library staff, who will be available to provide assistance during the closure. A book drop is available near the front door of the library for users who need to return library materials.

The Learning Spaces Project will transform three key spaces into learning environments. When the project is completed later in the fall, students will discover more individual and collaborative study spaces, more computers, new flooring, streamlined services and easier access to research and technological assistance.

A later phase of the project includes a 50-60 seat experimental classroom and a Mac lab.
