Health Sciences Library undergoes renovations

The Health Sciences Library on the Boston campus has embarked on a major renovation project, which will be completed over two years. The work will enhance the library's atmosphere and address concerns about comfortable space. "We will have a more inviting space at the completion of the project," said Eric D. Albright, library director.

This summer, renovations were started on the fourth and sixth floors of the library; the work includes the addition of comfortable seating, journals and computers on the fourth floor and a coffee bar.

In summer 2004, renovations will be done on the fifth floor, and the Learning Resources Center will be expanded with study rooms and more access to network connections.

The library will remain open during the renovation, although some services may be moved, Albright said. "The seventh floor of the library, where most of study space is, will not be touched in this renovation. However, during the renovation there will be construction-related noise," he said.
