ground floor of the Library. It will provide an open, welcoming environment
dedicated to interdisciplinary, collaborative activities that emphasize
high-end multimedia functions, and enable faculty, staff, and students to
incorporate new media skills and concepts into their respective activities.
The construction will take place during Break with the anticipated opening
of the lab for use in the spring semester.
