Syracuse University Libraries will begin construction of new classroom and seminar rooms on the lower level of Bird Library this summer, supported in part by a gift from the Solomon Spector Foundation in honor of Joseph and Elaine Spector.
The classroom features the latest in modern pedagogical technology and will accommodate up to 72 people. The Registrar will schedule use of the classroom Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; the Libraries will schedule the classroom at all other times.
The seminar room, a technology-enhanced space that features user-configurable furniture, will accommodate up to 20 people. Its use will be scheduled by the Libraries. In addition, the area between the two new rooms will be outfitted as a study and lounge space with new furniture.
The construction project will begin in early July and is scheduled for completion by the beginning of the spring 2015 semester. The lower level will be closed to the public for a portion of the fall semester.
The Academic Integrity Office has moved to room 548 on the 5th floor of Bird Library. The Electronic Training Center will be relocated to room 550.
