This project consists of the construction of an Automated Retrieval Center (ARC) for library materials, conversion of the fifth floor to a quiet study area, more electrical outlets, fire and safety improvements including renovated stairwells and sprinklers throughout the building, accessible restrooms, and upgraded elevators.
 
Future phases will include the construction of a building that connects the ARC to the library building, and a complete renovation of the existing library buildings. More group study rooms, as well as graduate student space, a reading room atop the Automated Retrieval Center, a digital commons, 3,264 seats in varied types for individual and group study, expanded special collections and exhibits area, and a main entrance on the Student Union side of the building will be completed in future phases of the 21st Century Library project.
