The Odegaard Writing & Research Center (OWRC) will open in an exciting new space on the first floor of the library in late June and with a new and innovative program. The library’s reference service and the OWRC’s writing service will work together in the space to provide students easy access to expert help in completing their writing and research projects. The OWRC will have cafe-height counters, round tables for tutoring sessions, a meeting room, a small reference library, and a welcome area with comfortable seating. It will be a welcoming space for students! See photographs of the new OWRC and the rest of the first floor at http://www.flickr.com/photos/ouglrenovation/.
