Designed around people rather than stacks of books, 21st-century libraries, such as the newly renovated John C. Hitt Library, incorporate more natural lighting and more open spaces for learning, studying and collaborating.
Books are no longer front and center, but that doesn’t mean they’re gone. Instead, they — along with other reference materials — are stored in an automated retrieval center built to house, protect and provide easy access to volumes with the click of a mouse. So students can spend more time searching for answers rather than looking for Dewey decimals.
Take a sneak peak inside the renovated spaces.
