Timeline

Revised February 2013

Late Spring 2013: construction begins on 1st floor renovation.  The new Learning Commons will take up a large part of the first floor of the Oviatt, including the wings.  The Learning Resources Center (LRC) will move from Bayramian Hall to the East Wing of the 3rd Floor of the Oviatt Library.  A new permanent Freudian Sip will be built in the lobby of the Library.  The Learning Commons, the LRC, and the new Freudian Sip will all open in Fall 2013.

Major reshaping of the print collection began in the summer of 2012 and will continue through 2016. This is an ambitious undertaking but is necessary to make room for repurposed learning spaces (both group study and individual study) throughout the library.

2014-2015: Expansion of Special Collections into the core of the 2nd floor.

2015: Group study rooms and collaborative learning spaces will be constructed in the 4th Floor core. Minor renovations will take place in the West Wing 4th floor (Technical Services).

2016: Group study rooms and collaborative learning spaces will be constructed in the 2nd and 3rd Floor core.
