When we move into the new Health Sciences Education Center, you can expect to find some familiar spaces such as our service desk and study areas. You will also see new and enhanced spaces that will support the exploration of emerging technologies in healthcare, including a Makerspace, a Data + Visualization Lab, a Faculty Commons, and a Virtual and Augmented Reality Lab.
As with any move, our move into the Health Sciences Education Center offers us a chance to reassess all of the things we have accumulated over time. For our three health sciences libraries, this includes a reassessment of our websites, with a redesign planned in the next year.
Our new library spaces in the Health Sciences Education Center will be full of new furniture. We're excited about the variety of seating options that will be available to our users, and are happy that we can offer some of our current faves.
Color will mark the different areas within the Health Sciences Education Center. Both the Health Sciences Library and the Wangensteen Historical Library will be recognizable because of their earthy orange color palette.
When we move into our new home in the Health Sciences Education Center, the Bio-Medical Library will become the Health Sciences Library to better reflect our work to support teaching and learning across all the schools and colleges of the Academic Health Center.
We’re Moving! In 2020, the Health Sciences Library and the Wangensteen Historical Library of Biology and Medicine will be moving into the newly-constructed Health Sciences Education Center (HSEC).
