Academic Libraries: Plans Moving Forward For a $20 Million Renovation of USC’s Leavey Library
From The Daily Trojan:
[At a meeting on Tuesday night] Academic Affairs Director Michael Yoshimura reported on his organization’s meetings with USC Information Technology Services and the dean of libraries.
“We’re expecting an overwhelming amount of people to support Leavey renovations,” Yoshimura said. “This is a student-driven issue, and students expect Leavey to be updated for the 21st century.”

Undergraduate Student Government senators unanimously approved two resolutions advocating for the renovation of Leavey Library and the installation of a gender-neutral bathroom in the Student Union on Tuesday.
The Leavey Library renovation is in the study stage and no fixed timeline has been set for the project, said Hugh McHarg, executive director of communications and public programming for USC Libraries.
