More outlets, tables, and quiet study in the library!

Long tables with stools and wall outlets have been added to the circular Friends Room near the library entrance. These outlets, along with all of our new outlets, have usb charging outlets built into them.

Half of the library computer tables have been replaced. The new tables are larger, which allows you to spread out your work and gather more than one person around a monitor. 

The Garden at Reed area inside the building had been expanded. The expansion includes long tables with wall outlets running along the wall.

A new work space has been opened on the 1st floor, between the art books and the bound periodicals. There are outlets and usb charging stations on the floor under the tables.

The group tables, over by the three study rooms, now have outlets running the length of the wall.

Also don’t forget the addition of outlets with usb chargers to many of our study carrels, which was made last year. 

In the Carnahan-Jackson Center, in addition to the 2rd floor Quiet Study, the 3rd floor has been converted to year-round Quiet Study space.

Sexual Assault Awareness Month Portrait Project. In 2009, President Obama declared April to be Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). Art Forum worked in collaboration with Pride to raise awareness for this pertinent issue.

These woven portraits are each 32x32 inches, and were made to fit together like a quilt. The texts in these images are not immediately legible, and illustrates that we cannot get the whole picture just by looking at someone. [via Art Forum’s statement]
