IAAO Research Library Remodel

IAAO headquarters’ building has 4 floors with the library on the bottom floor and a storage room on the top floor. The remodel project involved creating a kitchen/staff lounge out of the storage and expanding the library to fill the former kitchen. Construction started October 2016 and was completed in March 2017.

To celebrate the expansion of our library, IAAO hosted a Virtual Open House during April 2017. The videos below offer a tour of the new spaces and the construction process, as well as an explanation of our latest published research study.

Congratulations to the winners of the contests and the honorable mentions!
