Complete demolition of Facilities and Receiving department has made way for a new Stacks management space, new Facilities offices, new mail and supply rooms, and a better layout for the consolidated Book Repair and Conservation lab.
The glass wall that enclosed the Music and Dance help desk area has been removed. The wall separating the Music collection and the Music and Dance computers and composition stations has been removed. These wall removals improve sight lines for the help desk and the Music and Dance collection and study area to the north. Access to natural light has been improved. Furniture has been rearranged from an east/west orientation to a north/south orientation thereby facilitating patron movement through the area.
