With the installation of new furniture last week, the Paulson Reading Room has a new look. Putting the finishing touches on renovations completed over the summer, the reading room now features new carpet, a new reference desk, new research tables, and an improved computer access point for researchers. The updates to the reading room create more space for researchers by removing the partition and relocating the reference desk out of the center of the room. Three computers allow researchers easy access to requesting materials, or browsing digital collections. The new design retains the exhibit space on the east side of the reading room. Stop by and take a look at the new space.
