Last week construction started on the temporary home for Dana Biomedical Library at 37 Dewey Field Road.  The 3rd floor of 37 Dewey was gutted and walls are now going up for offices, classrooms, study space and services.

Peggy Sleeth and Susan Jorgensen in the north end of what will be the open study space with tables, chairs and couches.  This end also has 2 small class/meeting rooms.  The other end has an 18 seat classroom.

Over the next 2 months this raw space will be transformed into bright, colorful and vibrant space for studying, class meetings, checking out materials and getting help with library resources.

The staff is scheduled to move to the new space in mid April and a few weeks later the collections will be moved out of Dana to an offsite facility.  A small collection of reserves and reference books will be held in 37 Dewey, and a courier system is being established to fetch materials from the library storage facility.

This new space, which will be called Dana Biomedical Library at 37 Dewey Field Road, will be our home until the North Campus Academic Center is constructed on the current Gilman-Dana site. It is currently being planned for a 2016 opening.

We will be posting progress reports and updates as things progress.
