Dana Library Transformation Project

Dana Travel Advisory

After a few hiccups, the public elevator and stairwell off of the first floor lobby is now officially offline. Please follow the directional signage posted in the library lobby and the footprints on the floor to get to the alternative stairwell and elevator that will be used for the remainder of the renovation project. (You can also take a look at the first floor map included in the previous post). The fourth floor will remain closed to the public through early August as work to enhance the space continues.

Progress continues on building out the third floor. The perimeter walls of the floor are coming are being completed. Concurrently, a new reading room area for our archives departments has been completed. New walls have been installed along with new carpet and the paint refreshed. Workers are now focused on repainting the group study rooms, installing doors from the gallery space and updating the door locks, so that these spaces will be ready to reserve before the fall semester begins.
