Have you seen some the recent changes to the library?

  • The CARD Resource Library now occupies the northwest corner of the FMHI Research Library.
  • Next to CARD’s new space is a new “Knowledge is Power!” wall decal (Thanks, CARD!)
  • A group study room is now available in MHC 1738.  Visit the front desk for more information.
  • And, we have four “airport stations” just waiting for you and a project partner to use.  (No, they’re not as new as the other stuff, but you’ll find them located in the middle of it all!)
