Mizzou Libraries would like to thank the Student Fee Capital Improvement Committee for funding new furniture for the computer and work areas on the first floor of Ellis Library. The furniture includes numerous much-needed chairs in the computer and work spaces on the first floor, with a few more yet to come.
This photo shows a work area near Government Documents that has been refreshed with new tables as well as chairs. The furniture was chosen to make collaborative work easier.
The Student Fee Capital Improvement Committee provided $50,000 of funding for this improvement project.
Thanks also to Mizzou Libraries staff who helped with the project, including Gwen Gray, who filed the SFCIC proposal; Ann Riley, who envisioned the collaborative space; Pat Jones and Kathy Peters, who helped select the furniture; and others who provided assistance with the project.
