Roesch Refresh

With a vision to be “an intellectual fulcrum, opening doors, activating scholarship, inspiring creativity,” the University Libraries see an upcoming renovation of Roesch Library as much more than decorative or practical; it’s a veritable reimagining of library spaces and services ⸺ an opportunity to take a bold step toward the vision.

Besides upgrading plumbing and wiring and improving accessibility, the project, dubbed “Roesch Refresh,” challenges staff, faculty and patrons to think critically about collections, space, services, programs and partners to create a flexible, dynamic learning environment that is a destination for the entire campus.

Partnering with Levin Porter Architects and facilities management, library faculty and staff are gathering input from people all over campus for a design that will effectively serve the more than 2,000 people who visit Roesch Library each day during the academic year.

Renovations will take place in phases starting in December 2017. This website will provide design and progress updates as well as instructions for accessing library services during the renovation.
