With the start of a new year, we feel refreshed to think about the future. In this segment, I want to offer a preface to what will be reported in coming months. There are two particularly exciting tasks ahead.
By end of the calendar year we hope to complete the renovation of the W.W. Hagerty Library. Mechanical upgrades, replaced carpets, and reupholstered furniture were completed over the past couple of years with special focus on refreshing the second floor and starting on the entry floor. The remainder of the first and the ground floors still await renovation. To inform space design to address new demands for library spaces, we will conduct a series of discussions with a group of faculty, students and staff over coming weeks about desirable features for learning environments and programs to support them.
It's that time of year again - and no - we don't mean the Holidays. It is finals week at Drexel, and we're busy getting ready for the influx of students who use the Libraries to prepare for exams.
