The WVU community is invited to attend a grand re-opening reception for the Evansdale Library on October 13 from 3-4:30 p.m. Remarks by Provost Joyce McConnell and Vice Provost Russell Dean will begin at 3:30 p.m.
At the start of the fall semester, the Libraries wrapped up an extensive two-phase renovation project that added a café, study rooms, study carrels, a quiet-study room that seats 46 people, and multiple comfortable seating areas.
The reception will follow a presentation by Dr. Michael Stephens, a professor in the School of Library and Information Science at San Jose State University, on the role of libraries concerning massive open online courses, or MOOCs. Stephens’ presentation runs from 2-3 p.m.
