This fall semester, we mark the beginning of the construction for our much anticipated Seismic Retrofit Project. To accommodate the necessary structural work on the Library building, several programs currently in the Library are temporarily moving to the Campus Events Field as the final phase of the Seismic Retrofit Project starts this fall and wraps up in the Fall of 2019. The upcoming year of relocations are an opportunity to undergo required structural improvements and repairs and expand the footprint of the Library lower floor, providing spaces that more effectively serve the needs of the University. You can read more from Humboldt State Now: Major Construction, Relocation Coming to Campus.
What does all this mean? The following programs will be temporarily relocated and returning Fall 2019: Testing Center, Learning Center, Student Disability Resource Center (SDRC), Veterans Enrollment & Transition Services (VETS), Writing Studio, and Educational Opportunity Program (EOP). The map of the Campus Events Field is on back of this flyer, and more details available online at:
There will be some internal movements as well. The computer lab Library 121 will be relocated to Library 308, and the computers on the first floor in Library 122 will be moved to the second floor. Technology Help will temporarily move into Library 208, and the Research Help Desk will move into the Access Services Checkout Desk.
In addition to enhancing the strength and flexibility of the building, the Seismic Retrofit Project enlarges the lower floor of the Library, helping us to better meet the current needs of the University. The Youth Educational Services (Y.E.S.) and Academic and Career Advising Center (ACAC) will move into the Library building, and we are happy to be able to expand spaces for existing programs as well. In addition, Library 121 will be reconfigured to better meet the needs of faculty and students, and Library 308 will be converted to an active learning classroom in Fall 2019.
Directional signs in the Library will indicate the relocations, and we sincerely appreciate your patience, feedback, and suggestions. Although you may see fencing around the building, the path into the Library will always be open, and we will continue making this the welcoming and inclusive space you love for studying, collaboration, research, and creativity.
Lastly, please join us for the wonderful educational programs provided by the SkillShops, and various library events: Welcome Back Open House August 23rd from 3-5pm, and the HSU Authors Celebration February 14, 2019. While you are visiting, please stop by the Administration Office in Library 108, I am happy to share any updates and answer questions you may have about the Library. Have a wonderful 2018-2019 academic year!
