Library Renovations: Arizona State University’s Hayden Library to Reopen January 13, 2020
As the renovation of Hayden Library comes to a close this month, an exciting milestone is afoot: the return of the books.
Each day, thousands of books make their way back to Hayden Library, in anticipation of the library’s re-opening for the first day of the Spring 2020 semester on Monday, January 13.
Once shelved, the books will have a whole new look, as the concept of open stack collections has been redesigned for ultimate engagement.
Backed by data analysis and deep conversations with the ASU community, the print collections that will appear in Hayden Library will be more visible and usable, more flexible and user-driven, and more inclusive and high quality for ASU’s students and scholars.
