The DePaul community celebrated renovations of its John
T. Richardson Library with a grand opening of the Information Commons, a space with
state-of-the-art technology for students and faculty to gather and collaborate.
The commons space supports individual research and study, collaborative work,
and innovative approaches to teaching, learning, and research, as well as
traditional library services on the Lincoln Park Campus. At the dedication, Father Holtschneider delivered
remarks, and special guests included former DePaul University Board of Trustees
Chair Richard Heise, his wife, Gina, and Father John T. Richardson, DePaul’s
ninth president. Gina and Richard Heise sponsored the renaming of the John T.
Richardson Library after construction completed in May 1993. To learn more
