Welch Hall reopens as library and student center

Room and board. Welch Hall’s newly restored Great Hall, on the first floor, ready for the March meeting of the Board of Trustees. After nearly five years of construction, the final piece of the north campus modernization process is now complete and opens to the campus this month. The Welch Hall refurbishment, which began in January 2011, has finished on time and on budget and will link the north and south parts of the Rockefeller campus together with a twenty-first century library outfitted with grand study spaces and state-of-the-art meeting rooms.

Library expands digital offerings

When publishers first began to offer digital content, electronic access was typically available for just slightly more than a print subscription. Today, according to university librarian Carol Feltes, subscribing to the electronic version is the standard. This spring, the Rita and Fritz Markus Library announces several new initiatives — including the availability of Kindle e-book readers — that Ms. Feltes hopes will provide the library’s users with better access to this ever-expanding digital universe.
