Bio-Medical Library Construction Project Starts August 4

The Bio-Medical Library will be installing new computer furniture on the 2nd floor of the library beginning on Monday, August 4. The new computer furniture will have modern wire management and additional space that will allow for more collaborative group work. Expanded electrical power outlets for wireless laptop users will also be available. Self-service printing and copying, similar to what users experience in other University Libraries will also be initiated.

During the construction period, Reference Desk services will be provided from room 274, which is right behind the current reference desk. There will not be Reference Desk services available on Saturday, August 9.

University of Minnesota students, faculty, and staff will be able to access computers in the lower-level computer area on the 2nd floor during the construction period. Access to the lower-level computer area, room 274 and the group study rooms will be maintained during the project.

There will be some noise during the construction project which is expected to be completed by Wednesday, August 13.

Thank you for your patience as we improve our 2nd floor computer area.
