Opening Doors: improved Information Commons proposal

Two weeks ago, the university kicked off its "Opening Doors" campaign to support scholarships, endowments for academic needs and several building projects. The university libraries have a proposed project in the campaign that seeks funding for an improved Information Commons in the O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library Center. The Information Commons will blend technology and digital content with traditional print collections to provide high-quality research and services for both students and faculty. Go online to the Information Commons Web page for more background on our proposal.
