Colleges and Universities
Linderman Library is one of the oldest university libraries in the nation. The renovation project transformed the 19th century building and it’s late 1920's addition into a 21st century state-of-the-art center for the humanities as well as an intellectual center of activity for the entire campus. The renovations included new classrooms, seminar rooms, cafe space, integrated computer technology, networking, and climate controlled systems to preserve collections.
On the outside the masonry walls were repointed and new underground electrical power and steam utilities were trenched. A new separate utility building and loading dock were added to the northeast corner of the library.
Inside demolition included removing part of the 1920's ceiling for a better view of the skylight and access to new study rooms and a new corridor on the 3rd floor. Ramps were replaced with small lifts. The rotunda basement floor was lowered and the elevator was replaced.
