    New collaborative spaces and areas for quiet work throughout the Library with furniture that includes ample personal charging stations.

  • Expanded exhibit areas featuring rotating displays of photos and artifacts from the NCAR Archives.
  • Workstations with printing and scanning capabilities.
  • New Archives Research Center for archival consultations by appointment.
