Completed Renovation to Swirbul Library

This summer, Adelphi University completed renovations to Swirbul Library, adding state-of-the-art features to our invaluable resources. This major renovation helps us better support students’ needs for group and individual study spaces and to generally make Swirbul a more usable and attractive location for 21st-century knowledge discovery and creation. 

Collaboration Studios 

The main areas on the first floor were transformed, by the removal of the bound periodical stacks, to make way for collaborative spaces, which allow students to:

  • Display content from any device (tablets, laptops, smartphones) on flat-screen monitors
  • Write on walls with dry erase markers
  • Reservable spaces online
