Freedman Center Receives Outstanding Design Award
The Kelvin Smith Library's Freedman Center has received an award from the 2007 Educational Interiors Showcase Jury, and is featured in the "Outstanding Design" category in the August 2007 issue of American School & University.
Cited in the award is Gina Midlik, KSL's Senior Administrative Project Manager, who worked closely with Hasenstab Architects, Inc. to address a number of design challenges associated with housing a variety of computer and multimedia equipment in a public space. The design perfectly complements the Freedman Center's theme "from inspiration to presentation."
Between July 1, 2006 and June 30, 2007 nearly 17,000 people passed through the Freedman Center. Many came to borrow a digital still or video camera, a GPS device, a voice recorder, or an iBook. Nearly 8,000 of them came to work in the center on scanning projects or with the many language learning resources that are available.
