Biomedical Library at the University of Minnesota to Get a New Home and New Name
From Minnesota Daily:
The University of Minnesota’s Biomedical Library, currently located inside Diehl Hall, is set to be relocated this summer to a newly constructed building.
The library, to be renamed the Health Sciences Library, as well as the Wangensteen Historical Library of Biology and Medicine, will both occupy the new Health Sciences Education Center. The libraries are meant to encourage learning between medical professions through large group and communal spaces. Both will open on July 1.
Most print collections are not intended to move with the library to its new location. Instead, the University will make most content available through online versions, while handing out the print versions upon special requests. According to [Janice J Jaguszewski [director of the Health Sciences Libraries], the former library space will act as a storage facility.
