Renovation Update!

We are excited to announce that plans for the renovation are moving forward! The architects are preparing the final enhanced schematic design and construction drawings with an end of March timeline. As of now, construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in mid-July.

Here are some recent preliminary drawings of the proposed Team-Based Learning classroom and the relocated Information Commons. Please note: the colors are for definition of spaces, not the actual colors for the final designs.

Upcoming Renovations in the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library

Beginning in December the Medical Library is going to undergo some exciting and significant renovations.

The library’s sky-lit Information Room will be repurposed to accommodate a 126-seat team-based learning classroom. Six classrooms will replace un-utilized stacks space on the lower level. Two additional classrooms, several small group study rooms, and an Information Commons equipped with 24 dual-monitor workstations, will round out the changes on the lower level. When finished, these classrooms will be used for the bulk of YSM I and YSM II classes. When not in use for teaching, these rooms will provide much needed space for a range of group purposes. 

There are of course a myriad details associated with this project, so please keep an eye on the library’s homepage for updates and further information. It is our intention to keep users of the library informed of the process before and throughout the construction period. 

Finally, we apologize in advance for the inevitable inconvenience that the renovations will pose in terms of both noise and comfort, but please know that we will do everything we can to minimize the disruption.
