$11.3 million project will reshuffle many parts of the library
The UA's $11.3 million Main Library improvement project is scheduled to begin today and will not affect library services, the university libraries dean said.
The library's services will be shifted around to different floors for the next few months to complete the project.
When the renovations are complete in one year, the Main Library will have a remodeled circulation desk and special collections area, a brand-new Library Information Commons and a fifth floor addition, said Carla Stoffle, dean of university libraries and center for creative photography.
"We are really hoping to create a better environment for the students and provide state-of-the-art equipment," Stoffle said.
During the summer, the circulation desk was moved temporarily from the second floor so that the first phase of construction could be completed by January.
