Academic commons - progress report

The Academic Commons at Penrose Library construction project has progressed from demolition to building and is on schedule with an expected opening in winter 2013!  The new facility, in the central campus location where Penrose Library was built in 1972, will essentially have a similar acre-size footprint as the original library, with a 20-foot extension on the south side being the only new space spanning all three floors.

Read more, and watch a video on how books are delivered from our storage facility to the DU campus, on our blog!
