Response from UT Provost Maurie McInnis (April 6, 2018)
Report of the Fine Arts Library Task Force (April 2, 2018)
Recommendations on the Fine Arts Library from Dean Dempster and Vice Provost Haricombe (April 4, 2018)
Two working groups were formed to explore and address the future of spaces in the Fine Arts Library in Doty Fine Arts Building (DFA).
The first, under the leadership of the UT Libraries, was asked to explore and evaluate the alternatives to having the Fine Arts collection on the fifth floor of DFA—in part or whole—and explore the drawbacks and advantages of those alternatives.
The second is considered a) what facilities our new programs need and b) what spaces in the College of Fine Arts, throughout all our buildings and facilities in every department and school, could accommodate these expanding programs. All current spaces throughout the College of Fine Arts facilities are being considered, including the Doty Fine Arts Building.
