21st Century Makeover

The UIndy library will undergo a high-tech, $5.5-million renovation this summer and will include a ground floor café with food service, an outdoor plaza, a 24-hour study lab, and a glass-curtain exterior wall on the east side (pictured) to provide all three upper stories of the building with natural light and views across the Smith Mall green space. The first two floors will cater to social interaction and group work, with two more levels for research and reading.
