Library Renovation Leads to Soul Searching at Cal Poly
Carlson, Scott
Chronicle of Higher Education, v53 n2 pA59 Sep 2006
This article reports on a library renovation at California State Polytechnic University at Pomona which incurs complaints from professors and librarians about a shift from print to online materials. The $60-million project at Cal Poly is providing a difficult lesson in the challenges of library renovation, and in the changing role of one of the campus's central institutions. The project, now under way, will add an attractive glass entrance and space for computer rooms, study areas, classrooms, and socializing to a dull 1960s box. The renovation and addition--which is smaller than originally planned--may leave less space for books, journals, and other printed materials. That has some campus librarians and professors wondering if the library has forgotten its core mission.
