Manuscripts and Archives Renovation Information

February 7, 2017

Manuscripts and Archives will undergo a major renovation of its public spaces during 2017. While the renovation is in progress all public services, including the reading room where researchers consult collection materials, will be temporarily relocated to the Franke Room in Sterling Memorial Library.The renovation of Manuscripts and Archives will revitalize a beautiful space within Sterling Memorial Library, one that was originally built to house the rare book collections now at the Beinecke Library. The renovation project will provide for better stewardship of collection materials through improved environmental control and security upgrades. The researcher experience in the revitalized reading room will be enhanced with improved lighting, reduced noise, and improved consultation space. Perhaps most importantly for our teaching mission, the renovation will create a beautiful, inspiring, and secure classroom space to meet increasing faculty demand for teaching with Manuscripts and Archives collections.
