The next phase of renovation plan for the ZSR Library building has begun! To kickoff our upcoming summer renovation projects, ZSR Library relocated approximately 5,000 linear feet of material over Spring Break. The recent relocation of materials included:
- Moving the collection on the 8th floor of the Reynolds wing (the call numbers that start with Ds) down to the mobile shelving on Wilson 1;
- Moving the collection on the 6th floor Wilson wing (the call numbers that start with Hs) to the 8th floor of the Reynolds wing.
All records in our catalog have been updated with their new shelf locations; however, if you need to find anything in H or D call number ranges and you are unsure about the new item location, you can request a hold for the book through the catalog record and we’ll pull it and notify you when its available for pickup, or you can ask for assistance locating materials at any of our public service desks.
As renovation plans permit (and safety allows), we will provide additional seating on the 6th floor of the Wilson wing to accommodate the increased need for student study space during this busy time of the semester.
Upcoming Summer Renovation Projects
ZSR Library will be ready for the summer renovation projects that will start following the end of the semester. The renovation projects include an upgrade for two separate library spaces:
Reynolds 400 (current location of Microtext and Government Documents) will become a Scholars Commons. We will create a student study room with flexible study options, plenty of electricity and increased technology choices. The room will be refreshed with new furniture, paint and light fixtures. There will be a major increase in number of available electrical outlets. We will also update, enhance and increase the technology available for student use.
Faculty Collaborative Services
The Faculty Collaborative Services project will create two complementary faculty-focused spaces on the sixth floor of the Wilson Wing. This project will locate the Teaching and Learning Collaborative and the Digital Scholarship Lab adjacent to each other, taking advantage of natural synergies between their missions and affording an efficient sharing of class and conference rooms, a recording studio and a faculty lounge. Space for this project will be created by shifting collections in that area to other locations in the library.
