Olivet School of Media and Communication (OSMC) reports the progress of David James Randolph Library renovation.
Since the namesake library for OSMC Dean Dr. David James Randolph was announced, OSMC designated a 2,000-square-feet space to set up the library. The vision for the David James Randolph Library is to provide access to resources that will be useful for nurturing those who are called to serve in the media and the arts. A collection of books, journals, multimedia, technical manuals, and other relevant materials related to the media profession is being meticulously curated. The library's purpose is to allow students the opportunity to learn from those who came before them in hopes that the nations and multitudes will come to know of Jesus' name.
An architect team was tasked to come up with the design-build that tailored to the function of the library. Computer-rendered 3D images showcased the library's interior and floor plan. Minimalist aesthetic aims to create a spacious and clutter-free environment. The space will be furnished with wooden floorings, bookshelves, and furniture for study areas.
The construction project that turned the empty space into usable space was able to start with beautiful wood floors being laid down and walls newly painted. Furniture and equipment will be gradually added. The opening and dedication ceremony will be held when the construction is completed in the first quarter of 2022.
