The SIU Medical Library is undergoing a major renovation in 2014. The renovation builds on two years of planning with the goal to achieve a modern medical library with an exciting entrance, inviting space, and welcoming environment that supports study and learning; knowledge creation; collaboration; and interaction through exhibits, presentations, and special events. It will provide a central hub for the institution, fostering a community of scholars and learners with improved access and flexibility, technology and supporting infrastructure.
This site provides information about the goals of the project, the team behind it, the timelines, and updates that will keep you apprised of changes throughout the renovation. The Library will remain open during the renovation, which will be accomplished in three phases, and work will be done between 6:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. to minimize disruption to library users.
