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.
