Library Renovation

Library floor

The recent $6 million renovation to Vanderbilt’s Central Library includes a new gallery (above) linking the original 1941 building and the Flowers Wing. Students flock to the new sunlit, open study space on the eighth floor (bottom left), while the refurbished fourth-floor lobby (bottom right) welcomes visitors to the new Sixties at 50 exhibit. The projection of words (cover and top), which changes from a Vanderbilt V to an oak leaf to the star when walked through, represents real-time searches of the library’s electronic catalogs.
