Construction work is proceeding rapidly on the Second Floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library. The Learning Commons area, featuring greatly expanded study areas with a major increase in electrical outlets for laptop computers, etc., is nearly complete. Also to be located in the Learning Commons will be offices for the Jack Miller Writing Center, the Study Partners tutoring service, and the Office of Information Technology. New wood-paneled offices have been constructed for a centralized Reference Department as well. Over the holidays, new carpeting was installed in Second Floor office areas and on the Third Floor.
