Holloway Hall
A New Library - Creating a Shared Vision

 A New Building is several years away, but planning is starting NOW!
  
 The University’s 2004–2008 Strategic Plan describes the library as a...

     “focal point of learning, scholarship, interaction and invention among students,
      faculty, and staff.” The current building makes it difficult to reach that goal."


 What spaces/services/resources do you consider necessary for the library to
 achieve this?
