The Devereaux Library Renovation is part of South Dakota Mines 10-year master plan. The intent of this renovation is to create a center of learning where students can collaborate on projects, receive learning assistance, and study – all in one building. As a hub for information, the library will continue to house stacks of books and an archive on the third floor, however, the building will also be home to a maker space, math learning lab, testing center, and the Student Success center. Additional program includes a new office space for the computer help desk and Einstein’s Bros. Bagels (previously located in the Rocker Square apartment building). The exterior of the building is also undergoing major renovations to update the façade and adding in several windows to allow in more natural light.
Devereaux Library’s central location on the South Dakota Mines campus makes this a great spot for students to study between classes and a convenient location to access all of the resources housed within.
