Libraries Facilities Master Plan

July 11, 2017

The consultants working with the Libraries on the Library Master Plan recently completed a series of town halls on campus to provide faculty, students, staff, and the community updates on the process so far. The draft scenarios presented during these sessions will now be further built out over the summer, based on the feedback received through the town halls, the online comment form, and ongoing discussions with the master plan steering committee. The final trip to campus by the consultants to present their reports (trip 6 in the initial timeline) was scheduled to take place this summer. However, this process requires significant data gathering and research from entities across campus, with adequate time to compile and review. With the mindset that the master plan must be exceptionally constructed, the project team has pushed back the final trip to September to allow for the appropriate work by the consultants. While there are no public meetings on campus over the summer, the work with the project team behind the scenes will continue, in order for the scenarios to be further developed prior to the September visit.
