Learning Spaces for the 21st Century: The Future of the University Libraries
Apr 10, 2017
Jackson Library is busier than ever and filled with students engaged in a variety of learning opportunities. UNCG’s enrollment is increasing and our current space configuration does not accommodate the variety of learning environments we should be providing to our students. These environments, along with the expertise of our staff, enable students to create projects needed for their course work including traditional papers, media and 3D objects, and support your mission in the classroom. To accomplish this goal we need to remove some of the shelving in the Jackson Library tower. We will free up shelves by eliminating unneeded duplication of titles, increasing the number of items per shelf, and removing some of the non-essential titles that have not circulated in more than 25 years. This project will begin in 2016 with a pilot on the 6th floor of the Jackson Tower. Read more at the link below.
