This August marked the start of the 16th fall semester in Lied Library, which, as you may have noticed, has received a number of public space enhancements during the past few years. University Libraries is driven by the principle of continuous improvement, and work to provide the best learning environment for our students, faculty, staff, and community.
One of the many ways that our libraries support students in their academic endeavors is by providing a variety of learning spaces for them to explore, discover, connect, and create. We offer a diverse selection of spaces for students – places where they can recharge their minds as well as their devices, places where they can collaborate with their classmates, and places where they can reflect in solitude.
Lied Library’s second floor has received the most enhancements to date, and is nearing completion. The most recent update is the creation of the Leisure Zone, a place to learn serendipitously by providing many sources of information and different options for exploring it. Once open, later this fall, students will be able to take advantage of new furniture options in this space as well.
