Medical Library Remodel UPDATE

The Medical Library remodel is near completion and our new spaces are anticipated to open early next week! Here is an overview of our changes:

> NEW COLLABORATIVE STUDY ROOM located right next store to our original study room features:
  • Large open study area with clusters of group tables, bar height tables, comfy chairs, and three monitors for group work
  • Two breakout study rooms with Workware® technology allowing you to wirelessly project four laptop screens at once on wall-mounted monitors
  • Four full skeletons (three male, one female) and six bone sets will now call the study space home!

> REMODELED QUIET STUDY ROOM The old Medical Library Study Room has been converted into quiet study and features:
  • An array of new individual study spaces including carrels and pods - all wired with power!
  • Standing work stations
  • Textbooks and the USMLE review book collection

> INDIVIDUAL STUDY ROOMS The 7 individual study rooms have added insulation around the doors to reduce hallway noise.

> MEDICAL LIBRARY OFFICE You'll find our medical library faculty and staff in our remodeled office area with individual offices and a consultation space!
