The May issue of College Planning and Management features the opening of Colgate University’s newly renovated Case Library and the Geyer Center for Information Technology.
Located at the base of the hilltop campus, the Library features a 24-hour study space, a cafe, and video conference center. Flexible workrooms are located on the new top level, which is directly accessible from the upper campus. A “Main Street” traverses the main library floor, connecting with campus pathways and creating an inviting campus portal. The renovation features an Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) that provides archival-quality storage for 500,000 volumes. This provides accessible, high-density storage, retaining more materials on site while freeing up floor space.
The Shepley Bulfinch project team included Elise F. Woodward, Principal in Charge; Alexander Howe, Principal for Design; Kevin Triplett; Project Designer; Karen Estabrook, Project Architect; Joseph Bille and Robyn Whittier, Interior Designers; and Hannah Carlton, Interiors.
