In an innovative effort to create a dynamic, technology-focused learning environment for students and researchers, Central Michigan University elected to renovate and expand its Park Library and Information Services Center (LISC).
The expanded LISC is the centerpiece of this emerging learning environment at CMU. It contains client/server technology supported by infrastructure that integrates multimedia information into group and individual learning settings. The facility houses 1.3 million volumes, 90 percent of which is in nearly five miles of mobile ranges - one of the largest installations in North America.
Additional amenities include specialized instructional areas, a 145-seat modern multimedia facility, an art exhibit and reception complex, and a 20,000 square foot environmentally controlled archival facility.
Within just two years of its completion, the gate count to this facility increased 50 percent.
