A new comfy place to study on the library’s second floor

In the spring of 2012 George Fox University’s Library Innovation Task Force completed its report and list of recommendations.

With that in mind, over the summer of 2012 a significant part of the Murdock Learning Resource Center’s print journal collection was removed from its location on the east side of the second floor.  Replacing it is a variety of comfortable seating, including some group space, which surveys and studies show are in demand by students.
