BACKGROUND

Named after the donor who gave the first major philanthropic gift toward the new building, the Li Lu Library provides students with flexible, innovative, and connected spaces for accessing information and working in teams. The Li Lu Library is an extension of the HSL which facilitates research and learning support at the local, regional, and national levels through its work with organizations. Programming will integrate into interprofessional education to improve the accessibility of library resources and to foster collaboration between health professionals throughout their careers. The Li Lu Library prioritizes innovative study spaces over physical materials, facilitating the type of interactive study opportunities that students need in today’s academic setting.
