  • New Equipment for Lending More calculators, cameras, tripods, and fresh laptops for checkout
  • New Furniture One person tables and new chairs for quiet individual study on the 3rd floor of Bierce and bean bags on the ground floor. Plus four mobile whiteboards on the 2nd and 3rd floor.
  • New Lockers at the Science and Technology Library. Program your own code and use one of the nine lockers throughout the day.
  • New Learning Management System Brightspace, formerly Springboard, is our upgraded web-based course management system.
