Elgin Community College Renner Academic Library

Elgin, IL

Providing Resource Access to Students

The Student Resource Center (SRC) of the Elgin Community College is the "heart" of the campus and its student activities. The three-story building, originally constructed in 1970, needed an extensive remodel, renovation, and refurbishing with a major emphasis on its academic library. With a growing student population, combined with limited space for collections, Elgin Community College's library could no longer accommodate students adequately.

Providing architectural and engineering services, we expanded the SRC building to create study rooms, classrooms, and a vibrant student common area while tripling the library's square footage. The new Renner Academic Library and Learning Resources design focuses on students, offering more space to conduct studies, access resources, collaborate with fellow classmates, and socialize.
