Richardson Library Renovation: HOME

Information and updates about the renovation project


At its May 19, 2010 meeting, the Board of Trustees approved the first of four phases of a ten million dollar renovation of the John T. Richardson Library at DePaul University's Lincoln Park campus.

In Summer 2017, the Richardson Library will remake the second floor, incorporating spaces for creative work with a variety of media to support teaching and learning across the disciplines.

New spaces will include a maker studio, media production and editing rooms, a green screen, and data visualization capabilities.  The Information Commons will also extend to the second floor, expanding the individual and collaborative workspace options.

The Library will welcome partners in the new space:  Studio CHI (Computing/Humanities Interface), the Faculty Collaboratory, and FITS (Faculty Instructional Technology Services), creating an environment in which faculty can engage with each other and with students on innovative projects.
