Groundbreaking for the new Library Facility on South Campus will take place at the site adjacent to the Hawkins Building on Friday, October 7th at 2:30 p.m. Speakers include Vice-Chancellor and Provost Eric Spina, Library Dean Suzanne Thorin, Melissa Welshans, president of the GSO, and others.
The Library Facility on South Campus is a 20,000 square foot high-density storage facility that will house approximately 1.2 million volumes and include a processing area and conference room. A consistently maintained ideal environment of controlled heat and humidity will significantly extend the life of materials in the facility. Most important, this facility will enable the Library to support the long-term research needs of the faculty by providing space for collections growth.
