The transformation of UMKC’s Library into the Miller Nichols Library & Learning Center represents a dramatic breakthrough for the University, redefining the role of the library in campus life. The building includes a dynamic mix of reconfigurable spaces for collaborative education and provides access to a wide range of technology, student/faculty development, and community outreach opportunities.
From spaces for informal study to lecture halls, each environment is designed to promote active learning and student/faculty interaction. Specialty spaces, such as the Robot Café and content production rooms, promote the learning center as a destination for student study and gathering. The ongoing transformation includes multiple renovations and additions over a 25 year period, including a new automated archival storage system.
