You might have seen some builders and heard some extra noise coming from Level 1 in the Library. Work is being done on the former Technical Services department office to convert it into space for:
- a traditional classroom
- a digital classroom
- digitization work space
- recording studio
- meeting/consultation space
We’re excited to see this work move forward. Here are some pictures of the progress.
Early in October: structure for new walls went up

We hope the full studio will be ready to open for faculty and students to use in 2018!
What should we add to our growing leisure reading collection? You can leave suggestions for authors, titles, and genres as sticky notes on the whiteboard in the Level 1 reading room!
Drop by Level A of the Library on Wednesday, 11/15/17 from 3:00pm-4:00pm, and grab a cider donut or cup of apple cider, or both!

Did you know the Library maintains an ongoing ‘wish list’ for e-resources? By faculty request, new online resources this semester include Encyclopedia of Race and Racism and Vital Statistics on American Politics 2015-2016. During the academic year, we review and set priorities, depending on available funds. Faculty may inquire with their library liaison or directly to Katie Bauer or Jennifer van Sickle. Review the wishlist here.
