During the fall of 2015,
the CMU Libraries undertook a master planning process to determine future uses of spaces within the library building. The area on the south end of the third floor was selected as an ideal location for the Writing Center and Math Assistance Center. Currently, both centers are located in the east hallway on the 4th
floor and are not easily seen from the atrium.
The third floor space is highly visible and will provide a slightly larger space for both centers. Construction of the relocated
centers will begin in June 2017. Prior to construction,
the south end of the third floor contained a mix of tables and carrels seating up to 112 students. The tables have been relocated
to other spaces on the 3rd
The bound periodicals which are shelved on the third floor have been downsized and shifting is underway. The long-term plan is to remove the shelving on the far east side of the floor and to replace it with new study spaces. Much of
the content in the bound periodicals is available online; the Libraries' will retain the bound periodicals for which we do not have online access.
