Beginning June 1, crews will be installing sound partitions in the Eisenhower Library at the south end of each floor.

The partitions are being erected to help mitigate noise from the construction that commences this summer on the Brody Learning Commons. The four-story learning commons, scheduled for completion in July 2012, will sit to the south of MSEL and will feature flexible group and individual study areas, interactive media rooms, a large reading room, and a new café. The facility will increase the library’s seating capacity by a third—adding more than 500 new seats—and will be completely wireless-enabled.

Workers will begin installing partitions on D-level and work their way up to M-level. The installation process is expected to take two weeks, and the crews work from 7 AM to 3 PM, Monday through Friday.
