Comments Off on McCabe Library, Swarthmore College
The McCabe Digital Library at Swarthmore College supports a range of student-centered activities: a lounge, eating nook, kitchen, and flexible study and lecture space.
The lecture area is outfitted with several dozen Flip-Top tables that can be arranged for group work or as a lecture hall. In addition, the Flip-top tables can be stowed away to open up the space for other activities as needed. To further support student work, there are several mobile markerboards and a mobile storage partition where supplies are kept.
Cava Architects developed a wall panel system that allows the space to be partially or fully closed off from the rest of the library.
Milder Furniture developed an ADA height-adjustable lectern, especially for Swarthmore.
