Scott Memorial Library

Jefferson University

Developed a phased master plan study with the larger goal of creating a new vision for the Scott Memorial Library building paired with a detailed assessment of the existing building, all of its systems and program. This was followed by creating a program for the Center for Teaching and Learning within the building, and several FF&E projects for areas where stacks had been removed.

Scott Memorial Library is the defacto hub for the Jefferson University Campus and used extensively by students. TJU’s urban campus has no traditional student center, and this combined with the rapidly changing uses and functions for libraries on college campuses, make it an ideal time to step back and evaluate the best uses and functions for the building and how it relates to the campus.
