Library Building Project
A major expansion and renovation of the J. Paul Leonard Library building is underway. Set to open Spring 2012, the new home of the J. Paul Leonard Library, Sutro Library, Labor Archives and Research Center and Academic Technology, will provide expanded study and computing space for users, growth space for collections, access to new technologies, and a safe and healthy environment for work and study.
Once completed the new Library will have 34% more total space; 50% more seating; 50% more group study areas; 50% more collection capacity, both in open stacks and a high-density automated retrieval system; and 100% more computers.
The new library building will provide a flexible and congenial learning environment in the heart of campus.
