Vanderbilt Central Library renovation to transform campus learning environment

Vanderbilt University’s Central Library will undergo a $6 million renovation that addresses 21st century teaching and research needs for students and faculty while enhancing the experiences of community visitors.

“Scholarship has changed dramatically in the 70 years since construction of the Central Library,” Richard McCarty, provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs, said. “The Information Revolution completely transformed the way faculty members teach, the way students learn and the way faculty and students conduct research.” He noted that the look of Vanderbilt’s largest library building has stayed much the same since World War II, except for the addition of the L. Fort Flowers Wing in 1969. (more)
