2014 - 2015 Oklahoma City University School of Law Library Annual Report: Downtown

A Year of Change

The 2014-15 academic year was a time of tremendous change for the law library. After months of careful planning the library collection was relocated to it’s new home in the downtown building over the summer. This once in a lifetime move was carried off without a hitch thanks to many long hours of work by the librarians and staff. The Fall semester was a time of intense preparation for moving out of the Gold Star building. In December all faculty offices, library furniture, and the small remaining library collections were moved to the downtown location. The new library spaces took shape in the Spring semester. The tremendous effort invested in the new building was recognized with several awards including the City of Oklahoma City Mayor’s Award for Outstanding Development and Preservation Oklahoma’s Award for Excellence in Historical Preservation / Urban Private Sector.
