EVANSTON, Ill. — Northwestern University Library has announced that the Marjorie I. Mitchell Multimedia Center will undergo a renovation this summer.

The renovation, designed to improve the services and spaces within the center, will include a more convenient entrance, larger service desk, additional public NUcat stations, self-serve carrels and viewing facilities, increased collection capacity, and a video return drop box. Portions of the renovation are part of the Life Safety and ADA updates that have been taking place throughout the library.

The Multimedia Center and the collection will be closed, beginning Monday, June 16. The center is offering advance checkout to faculty for summer session and fall quarter classes from Monday, June 9 through Friday, June 13. Items borrowed during this period will be due back to the library on Monday, Sept. 29.

The construction will affect the Forum Room, Video Theater and Seminar Room 3746, all of which will be closed throughout the renovation.

The Multimedia Center is scheduled to re-open at the beginning of the 2008 fall quarter.
