As remodeling winds down, Steenbock rooms are once again available

Steenbock Library’s remodeling project is winding down. Both larger meeting rooms (240 and 340) are once again available, and can be reserved by calling 262-9990. Steenbock has also built eight new group study rooms on the first floor to accomodate the increase in group work by students. These spacious rooms, which can easily accomodate six, replace the five smaller group study rooms that used to be available on the fourth floor. Over the course of the semester new furniture and computer equipment will be added, but the rooms are functional now. They can be reserved for the current week by signing up on the reservation sheet posted on the door of each room. Telephone reservations are not accepted for the group study rooms.

Fourth floor remodeling is nearly done, too. By the end of February all of the collection will again be directly available to researchers and students. When completed, the fourth floor will house a new suite of offices for the campus Archives department, where researchers can examine the documents, records, photographs and films that Archives preserves for the University.

During this semester two of the three air handlers located in the basement will be replaced, completing the 18-month project. During this phase of the project, air quality will be monitored closely, but noise may be a problem during daytime hours. Steenbock regrets any inconvenience to library users and those in CALS offices in the basement of the building, but everyone is very happy that the end of the project is in sight!
