Wondering what’s going on behind those construction barriers? Here’s a sneak peak!
Have you seen the artwork on the temporary walls located on the 1st and 2nd floor of Gorgas? Our students are very creative!
The hand prints belong to our Library faculty and staff. Just a fun activity to kickoff the renovation and add some color to the walls!

UNIVERSITY ARCHIVE FACILITY CONSTRUCTION PROGRESS
After three years of planning, construction of the University Archive Facility has finally begun! The structure that is approximately 15,000 square feet and will be built as an addition to the Library Annex. Approximately 1/3 of the new building will be dedicated to space for Special Collections and 2/3 of the space will be used for general collections. The area for Special Collections will be constructed to withstand strong winds. Clean agent fire suppression equipment will be used throughout the new building, and high bay, mobile shelving will be installed to maximize use of the space. The University Archive Facility is expected to be completed and ready for use by late fall, 2019.
September 18 Update– Shelving was delivered this week and the vendor will begin installing it into the shelving frames. The project is moving along!
