Libraries 2020 Internal Communications committee announced

An internal Communications committee has been established to provide accurate and timely information to Libraries employees regarding the renovation and construction of the “Libraries 2020” project. The committee will work together for the duration of the project, roughly September 2019, to:

  • Identify applicable messages to be shared on a regular and basis, especially regarding departmental moves, wayfinding impacts, safety-related alerts, potential noise and utilities disruptions for employees and visitors, temporary and long-term space closures and (re)openings, and other related construction topics relevant to daily workplace operations;
  • Assist in the creation of messages, to be shared via Staff Site Posts and a designated Libraries 2020 Staff Site page;
  • Create, schedule, plan, and execute any special events and communication forums that support regular information sharing among construction partners and employees; and
  • Serve as communication liaisons to solicit employee feedback and encourage positive engagement, as well as be available to answer employee questions and receive input.

Join the Town Hall on April 30, 1 – 2 p.m.  Representatives from the Office of Physical Plan (OPP) and Alexander Construction Company will discuss the construction timeline, sequencing of the various components of the project, site logistics and more. Members of the Space Planning Committee will also be on hand to field questions.

Visit the Libraries 2020 faculty and staff information page on the Libraries’ intranet site, here, for the latest news and project timelines (subject to change at any time).
