  3. Flexibly designed stack areas that will accommodate various print materials more efficiently
  4. An open, circulating collection of books and bound journals, special collections and archives, reference collections and current journals
  5. Wireless PDA technology that will allow computer laptops and other portable devices to be used throughout the facility
  6. Adequate, well-designed and user-accessible staff space, and
  7. Graphic and virtual reality technology

The total project cost for the Library (including the related Equipment described below) is estimated to be approximately $35 million. The design phase is completed, and completion of construction is expected in October 2007.
