“University of Michigan to Invest $62M in Upcoming Library Renovations”


The University of Michigan Board of Regents voted Thursday afternoon (April 19, 2012) to approve $62 million in library renovations.

The A. Alfred Taubman Health Sciences Library is set to receive a $55 million upgrade that includes the addition of a clinical simulation area for the medical school, a study area and a computer lab, in addition to the renovation of the existing library.


The renovation will move a portion of the library’s books off site, but school officials say they’re putting a plan in place for students to access them.

Regents also approved a $7 million renovation of the law school’s Hutchins Hall and William W. Cook Legal Research Library, which was vacated after the school moved administrative offices and classrooms into the recently built South Hall, located on Monroe Street, in October.(/blockquote>
