Construction of a classroom space in Lippincott Library’s staff work area (located behind the Reference Desk) will begin in mid May. The room is made possible by a generous gift from Wharton Alumnae Jill Yablon and her husband Paul. Scheduled for completion by September 2013, the classroom will have 16 computer stations with dual monitors, plus a teaching station. It will be used to provide hands-on instruction for Bloomberg, S&P Capital IQ, and other financial databases. The room will be available to the Penn Community when it is not being used for instruction.
The movers already got to work on Thursday by moving all of the furniture out of the staff area.
We will keep you updated on the progress throughout the summer. Please excuse the noise and dust while construction is taking place!
