Each day, thousands of books make their way back to Hayden Library, in anticipation of the library's re-opening for the first day of the Spring 2020 semester on Monday, January 13.

Once shelved, the books will have a whole new look, as the concept of open stack collections has been redesigned for ultimate engagement.

Backed by data analysis and deep conversations with the ASU community, the print collections that will appear in Hayden Library will be more visible and usable, more flexible and user-driven, and more inclusive and high quality for ASU's students and scholars.

Learn more about the new open stack print collections coming to Hayden Library in January 2020.

In addition, the ASU Library has set out to increase, enhance and diversify student study spaces in the new and improved Hayden. 

Moving away from the study zone system of the past, the ASU Library has implemented a variety of work and study options. Learn more about the study spaces coming to Hayden Library.
