Reading Room as Gathering Space

In addition to being a quiet space for researchers to use materials, the Reading Room as gathering space will be there to encourage thoughtful discussions of classes, facilitate group meetings, and be an access point for those curious about the Museum or other campus resources.

As renovations proceed, more information about how to utilize this space for groups will be made available.
