New Orleans: “Tulane University’s Library Will Offer Fashion Accessories: Earplugs”
Come November, workers are going to be drilling and pounding as they start adding two floors to the Uptown campus’ main library.
“There will be a lot of noise,” said Lance Query, dean of libraries and academic information resources.
The 70,000-square-foot addition, which is expected to cost about $21 million and take about two years to complete, will hold hundreds of thousands of books, documents and other materials that drowned in Hurricane Katrina’s floodwaters. The materials were in the library’s basement or in the basement of Joseph Merrick Jones Memorial Hall across Newcomb Place.
