Between January and September 2007 the design team from Shepley Bulfinch and H+L Architecture conducted a series of workshops on campus to define the role of the library and its ideal physical form. Broad input was sought from faculty, staff and students, including the Library Program Committee, the Facuty Executive Committee and Senior Staff. Staff from the Learning Commons, Tutt Library and Information Management were also involved in refining space needs. Over the course of these meetings, a number of different options for renovationg and expanding Tutt Library, as well as alternatives for a new library were considered. During the September 2007 meetings, two options were selected as viable solutions. One is a new library on the North Palmer Quad (Option F), and one is a transformed Tutt Library with an addition to the West (Option G). Conceptual studies of these options may be viewed in a display on the second floor bridge of Tutt Library.
