The Center: bringing academic centers & services together at Simpson College

Dunn Library has been working towards The Center for several years. We are in year seven of intentional, incremental changes to build academic community. Based on our 2009 LibQUAL+ survey results, 2011 program review, 2012 visioning report, and 2015 concept designs, faculty and staff housed in Dunn Library are now collaborating to make it happen. By reducing print collections, sharing a variety of office spaces and equipment and adding color, the space is being defined with form following function.
