Library Improvement Projects

The University Libraries is continually working to improve your experience. These facilities projects now underway will help make library spaces more welcoming, usable and accessible.

Wilson Library Improvements

The University is planning for several improvements in Wilson Library that will provide critical updates in this historic building. The project will include extending sprinkler coverage, creating emergency egress stairs and upgrading the fire alarm system.

Because this work will be disruptive and widespread given the size and age of the building, Wilson Library will close to the public during construction. You can find the most up-to-date details about the project and closure on the dedicated Wilson Library Improvement Projects page.

Davis Library Patio

The patio space near the Edible Campus Main Garden is a great place to eat, work or just take a break, and it’s getting even better. The Libraries and Edible Campus have given the area a deep cleaning and are working to add more seating and WiFi coverage.

The patio is located behind Davis Library and can be accessed by going outside and around the building. There has never been a better time to enjoy this beautiful space.

Davis Library Bathrooms

The Libraries recently finished construction of an accessible single-stall restroom on Davis Library’s third floor. We will soon continue efforts to add additional single-stall restrooms on the library’s upper floors.

You may notice some noise and dust during construction, but we will work to minimize impact on users as much as possible, including limiting work during exam periods. Construction areas will be marked with signage and the Libraries will provide notice of significant disruptions.

Library Furniture Improvements

The Libraries will be adding new and improved furniture and seating to the Davis Library 2nd floor, the Undergraduate Library, and the Health Sciences Library 3rd and 4th floors.

Davis Library Gallery

The Libraries will be adding new furniture and seating in the Davis Library Gallery space facing the Davis Library Patio space, on the 1st floor of Davis Library. This space offers a great view onto the patio space and the Edible Campus Main Garden.
