The Claire T. Carney Library project, slated to open in the Fall of 2010, will contain, in addition to the library collections of books, periodicals and other information, a lecture venue for guests speakers and University receptions, a campus gallery and the Rockland Trust Cyber Café--a technology equipped campus meeting spot. The expanded library space will benefit not only the University's student population but the greater Dartmouth-SouthCoast community as well.
"We are grateful for the generous support of Rockland Trust," stated UMassDartmouth Chancellor Jean F. MacCormack. "Their donation will help us transform the library--the intellectual heart of the university--into a modern hub of knowledge creation, dissemination and interaction."
"At Rockland Trust, we are committed to strengthening the communities in which we work and live," stated Jane Lundquist, Executive Vice President of Retail Banking and Corporate Marketing for Rockland Trust. "We are proud to assist the University in creating a vibrant, attractive, interactive learning space for the community."
