Library Hawk Squawk: Library Design Sessions; Quiet Change

Library design sessions: After 54 years of service to Holy Names, our library building is due for fresh ideas and reassessment. Should we renovate? Rebuild? Keep things as-is?

All HNU faculty, students, and staff are invited to be part of this exploration , to begin with two important library design sessions on Friday, September 14. Campus-wide participation is vital to this process. We in the Library extend our gratitude in advance to all of you who can take the time to participate in one or both events.

The morning session, at 9 am Friday September 14 (RSVP here for the 9 am session), features a talk about the library design process by library space planner and Santa Rosa Junior College faculty member Will Baty. Topics include an overview of library space planning, key issues in contemporary library design, and typical processes and timelines.

The afternoon session, at 2 pm Friday September 14 (RSVP here for the 2 pm session), is a visioning session, also led by Dr. Baty, where you will be invited to weigh in on what YOU want to see for your “library of the future.” For more information, email the Library at

Quiet change: Two weeks ago, Campus IT and Library IT moved the server that provides authentication for databases, ebooks, requests from other libraries, and all other library resources you sign in to. This transparent transition was the smooth and successful culmination to months of hard work. Kudos especially to Glenn Sager and Nicole Greenland!
