Submitted by
Thomas Singarella, Ph.D. Professor and Director
Health Sciences Library and Biocommunications Center University of Tennessee Health Science Center April 25, 2012

Executive Summary
 
The
 Library Renovation Proposal 
 presents a comprehensive plan for making long-needed improvements to the Health Sciences Library and builds on the
 Library
 
5
th
 Floor Space  Reallocation Proposal 
 of January 17, 2012. Dr. Ken Brown directed the library to reduce the  print collection on the 5
th
 floor to increase student study space, expand space for the Historical Collections, and specifically to develop a comprehensive renovation proposal to detail improvements to all library floors for funding consideration. As a major campus resource for students, faculty, staff, and as the public face to visitors to the campus, the library needs renovation. The guiding principle in developing the proposal was to more effectively accommodate the needs of students using the library. Major student input was provided for the student learning, study, and information commons. The
 Library Renovation Proposal 
 includes all library floors; foremost among general improvements for consistent aesthetics is new carpeting. The proposal includes adding a student study, learning, and information commons and expanding the Historical Collections on the 5
th
 floor; centralizing the print collection and creating new individual student study quiet areas around the periphery of the print collection on the 4
th
 floor; reallocating offices to create three additional student small-group study rooms and renovating library staff and student break rooms, and offices on the 3
rd
 floor; and renovating the foyer and main entrance to the library, creating a one-stop, single-service, multifunctional Information Desk (combining reference, circulation and access services), and renovating the library conference room, student instructional lab, and staff operations areas on the 2
nd
 floor. Considerable work is currently under way to remove the remaining 5
th
 floor print collection and shelving to the 4
th
 floor to create space for added student study areas. The development of the
 Library Renovation Proposal 
 was placed on the fast track. Input was  provided by many campus and vendor participants, foremost Kari Conrad (Facilities), Steve Butler (ITS), Steve Tom (Facilities Moving), Stephanie McGee (CFA--Contract Furniture Alliance), as well as the faculty and staff of the library who worked daily and tirelessly to develop this proposal. Summary cost estimates received from Facilities and CFA make up the bulk of the proposal costs and are outlined (to date) as follows:
Budget Summary Item Cost ($)
General Renovations All Floors 289,661 5
t
 Floor 373,600 4
t
 Floor 90,200 3
 Floor 158,886 2
n
 Floor 313,595 TOTAL 1,225,942
 
 iii Specific budget estimates are provided in the proposal. The library will begin implementing the renovation plan as soon as approval to proceed in whole or part is provided by Dr. Brown. In summary, this
 Library Renovation Proposal 
 presents a detailed plan for renovating major areas of the library to make them most useful to students, improve and create more efficient library operations, improve security, ensure ADA compliance, and create a visually attractive modern health sciences library that will be a showcase for the campus.
