Short Description

Based on the idea of a "town" square, it allows a space for many activities (study, meet up, events) as well is serving as the home forĀ Q&i service point.

Located in Rush Rhees, 1st Floor

"I always believed that Rush Rhees Library is the heart of my proud alma mater, from both a geographical and a functional perspective. It is the focal point for our students to learn, explore, research, socialize, and showcase their achievements."

These words belong to Evans Lam '83, '84 (MBA) whose generous donation allowed the construction of Evans Lam Square, a state-of-the-art learning and research space in Rush Rhees Library.

The square's unique design allowed the development of special programs that help redefine the function of the library: the comfortable seating and access to computers make the Square a great place for students to meet with librarians for research consultations; two booths that include benches and tables provide semi-private spaces for small groups to work collaboratively or together independently; a flexible area for "pop up" services, support, workshops, or exhibits based on student needs; the Tech Sandbar that encourages students to discover new and cutting edge technologies they may apply to their coursework.
