There have been many positive changes in Manning Hall over the summer months with newly acquired spaces on the garden level of the building. The Odum Institute moved to its new renovated space in the Davis Library the end of July. The School of Information and Library Science now has much needed additional spaces that includes a classroom, a seminar room, a video studio, faculty and staff offices and cluster spaces for researchers to more easily collaborate on projects.
"This has been a highly fluid and complex process that disrupts the lives of two of UNC’s great organizations," said Gary Marchionini,dean and Cary C. Boshamer Distinguished Professor. "The patience and good will of scores of people in central administration, the Odum Institute and SILS have made this transition possible."
The moving began August 1st, and while the majority of the moves have now been completed, there are still moves and adjustments taking place. Some of the moves to the garden level have resulted in faculty and staff moves throughout other parts of the building.
