Renovations to Joseph Anderson Cook Library began in June of 2019 and will be ongoing through 2021. The project includes the replacement of the roof, updates to the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system, and remodeling of study spaces on the first and second floors.
Included in this project is the addition of the Bower Academic Center, which will house the Student-Athlete Academic Center. The Bower Center serves Southern Miss’s nearly 350 student-athletes, and although its primary audience is athletes, many of the amenities will be available for use to students of all disciplines during certain times. This will increase the number of available study rooms.
The Academic Advisement Center is also part of this project and will provide academic support services for students that include selecting or changing majors and class scheduling.
