So, the library's being renovated?

IUPUI University Library’s 3rd and 4th floors are getting a renovation this Fall. The library has not had a significant update since it was opened in 1993. The renovated spaces will improve the library’s function as the informal learning hub of the campus. The new design will improve private, quiet study spaces on the 3rd floor, and it will increase the amount and quality of collaborative, group study spaces on the 4th floor. More than 400 new private study carrels, tables, couches, and other seats will be added to the renovated floors.

Where did the books go?

In order to accommodate new seats and study tables, we needed to clear space occupied by bookshelves. That meant we would have to remove some print materials from the collection. But which ones?
