MBU Library Renovation Project: Home

This page provides information related to the library's "rightsizing" plan and renovation project.

Library Renovation Information

The upcoming library renovation (Fall 2019) will provide an engaging atmosphere that supports collaborative thinking and challenges students and faculty to access knowledge in a variety of ways. The renovated space will focus on creating unique study spaces for students, including collaborative workstations and small meeting rooms. Understanding the need for quiet study, a designated quiet study area will be set aside for the more traditional library user. This dedicated quiet study area will be closely monitored by library staff to control the noise volume. 

In order to pave the way for the space necessary for this updated learning environment, a large scale weeding project will need to be completed. The main goal of any weeding project is to maintain a high level of access to quality research materials for students, faculty, and staff. The Library will need everyone's help to accomplish this goal. The Library will continue to maintain its reciprocal borrowing agreements with MOBIUS. More information about the weeding project is available on the Collection Assessment Project page. 

Once the timeline for the renovation is in place we will share it with the Missouri Baptist University community.
