Inside the Wells Library, renovation of the ground floor cafeteria is underway and construction of the new Moving Image Collections and Archives on the ground floor will begin in September. The cafeteria project is expected to be complete by December 2015 and the Moving Image Collections and Archives will be complete in April 2016.
