Construction to Begin on Digital Laboratory

Renovations to the space that will be occupied by the digital laboratory will begin in the second week of May 2010. Renovations will include the creation of a separate alcove for the large format digital imaging workstation, as well as new carpet, new furniture, projection equipment, and installation of new storage for equipment and collections. The target date for completing this work will be the beginning of the summer session (June 14, 2010) but may extend into July.
