Shepard Library Renovation

The NCCU Shepard Memorial Library has undergone a substantial renovation.  On Monday, June 29th the Library began renovations for the new up fitted collaborative space for the library and IT staff. The first and second floors have new services to assist you.

The first floor has been revitalized with:

  • 3 collaborative spaces for teamwork, with display monitors and whiteboards
  • a TechnoLounge with 30 computers and a laptop bar
  • a TechnoClassroom with 14 computers
  • new carpeting and paint with improvements in lighting
  • new flexible furniture
  • a bistro area near the Starbucks
  • a single service desk where your technology, reference, and library information questions can be answered
  • printing stations- 2 black and white and 1 color

All frontline ITS support services have been relocated to the first floor of the James E. Shepard Library from the Student Union and the H. M. Michaux, Jr School of Education.  These spaces include: 

  • ETAC (the ITS helpdesk)
  • ETC (the repair center and our one stop shop for technology services)
  • ITS training and communications
  • the printing/library support team

On the second floor we have:

  • 65 computer stations
  • printing stations 2 black and white and 2 color
  • A consolidated single service point with Access Services and Reserves
  • Also added is an additional group study room

We appreciate your patience and understanding during or renovation process and invite you to visit the new James E. Shepard Memorial Library.  If you have any questions or feedback, please email us at or
