Work is currently going on in the Learning Commons area (southeastern quadrant of the Second Floor, Ralph Brown Draughon Library) to retrofit the tables with casters on the legs, thus making the tables rollable for the convenience of library patrons who may wish to move the tables around for research and study purposes.
