  • where students intermingle with

  • and learn from their contemporaries through observation and

  • collaboration

Morgan Library Today

  • Original building opened in 1965, addition in 1998

  • 299,584 square feet, 2 million volumes, an over-subscribed computer lab, and limited study/tutoring/classroom space

  • Provides services for ~25,000 students and

  • 6,250 faculty/staff

  • 1.3 millions visits a year

  • But, crowded with students learning

    • 65% ‘prefer’ to study in Morgan

      • It’s staffed – help is available

    • 17% increase over the past decade

    • Morgan seats 11% (2,570) of students

      • ‘Standard’ is 20%

What CSU students tell us

  • I would use the Morgan Library more if it…

  • Summary – Libraries Must be Progressive!

    • Morgan is very important to CSU – it is used heavily by students in all disciplines

    • Morgan renovation has student support – could be partially funded through the University Facility Fee

    • Renovation endorsed by

    • The Library 2020 Task Force, and

    • The Library-IT Task Force

    • Program plan has just been completed
