The Roland G. Parrish Library of Management & Economics is located within the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University. Between 2005 - 2007 work was completed on a white paper that focused on a student-centered vision for the Management & Economics Library. The next step was a massive collection reduction and a re-envisioning of both the services and space of the library. Thus began a 3 phase renovation from a 2 floor standard, collection-focused library into a single floor, 18,000sq ft. dynamic student-centered space. Each phase added to the overall design while reinforcing the core concept of a student-centered learning environment. The entire space was designed to be multi-functional and provide functional adjacencies between each phase.
