Laws Hall, the former site of the Farmer School of Business, will soon be the new home of a library for Business, Engineering, Science and Technology. The library will house print materials, a combined reference/circulation desk, group study rooms, a collaborative instruction room and an information commons area complete with new and emerging technologies for student use.
The College of Arts and Science and the Armstrong Institute for Interactive Media Studies will occupy some of the second and third floors.
Energy efficiency is a priority in the project, the university is replacing windows, adding insulation and improving heating, air conditioning and lighting throughout the building.
The new library is set to open in Fall 2011.
