The Perkins Project continues with the renovation of the two lower floors of Perkins Library as well as the Deryl Hart Room.   The work on the lower floors of Perkins has already begun; work in the Deryl Hart Room will start at the end of the fall 2006 semester.   Completion of all of these renovations is expected by next summer.
