Canada: University of Calgary digital library ready for students
From the Calgary Herald Article:
Staff at the University of Calgary are rushing to ensure the new Taylor Family Digital Library will be open by the start of the school year.
The new library was intended to be open for students prior to final exams in April but after the first two floors opened, a design flaw in the heating and cooling system was discovered that halted the move from the old MacKimmie Library tower.
Tom Hickerson, university librarian and vice provost, said he’s thrilled the refitting of the mechanical system is nearly complete and the new facility is close to being ready to open.
“Almost everything is fixed, it’s finishing up very quickly now,” said Hickerson. “It’s really quite exciting and a tremendous relief.”
