The renovation of the Fondren Library Center will meet the diverse and changing information needs of the University's students, faculty and staff. Reading rooms will be expanded and refurbished. Treasures in our Special Collections will be showcased in a graceful space as never before. All of these attractive, technology-rich and interactive features will promote innovation and will position the University for academic success.
