Falk Library Construction Updates

HSLS Construction Scaife Hall Corner Exterior DrawingA new Falk Library is on the way! As part of the Scaife Hall West Wing construction project, Falk Library is embarking on an exciting renovation project. Highlights of the new space will include updated and expanded learning and study spaces, integrated technology areas, modular seating, and a new entrance on Lothrop Street, convenient for all health sciences students.

While the expansion and renovation of the library will provide exciting opportunities, there will be disruptions and adjustments as the project evolves.

In early May, over 90,000 volumes of bound journals and print books were moved to the University’s Thomas Boulevard storage facility. Although housed off site, the materials are readily accessible to library users via an HSLS Document Delivery Request. The Current Collection, a companion to HSLS’s extensive e-book collection, will remain in Falk Library as well as the small Leisure Reading Collection and the Rare and Special Collections.
