Frank P. Doyle Library

Location: Santa Rosa Junior College, Santa Rosa, CA
Architects: TLCD Architecture with Shipley Bulfinch Richardson Abbott

An ultramodern library facility designed to meet the needs of this award-winning community college well into the future, this 140,000 square foot, four-story structure has been provided with every amenity and system imaginable in a modern learning resource center. In addition to the traditional college library program requirements, this facility provides for the College's curriculums in modern television production and journalism, as well as extensive courses in all other media production and training. Also included in the non-traditional functions of this learning resource center are: distance learning media classrooms, high tech tutorial center, experimental multi-media lab, art gallery, and café.

Energy efficient illumination systems, custom designed by O'Mahony & Myer's lighting design studio for each program area, are seamlessly integrated and controlled with a sophisticated, computer-based programmable system, which allows unlimited local user control while at the same time providing staff the ability to assume facility-wide control for Library start-up or shut-down. Media assembly classrooms are provided with flexible, programmable "scene" control for the sophisticated lighting systems, which are fully integrated with state-of-the-art audio/visual and distance learning systems. The result is that each instructor can easily select the appropriate pre-programmed sequence he or she may require for a wide range of media demonstrations.
