At the end of December 2018, Facilities began renovation of the library third floor. This FAQ is provided to explain the renovation and address important and frequently asked questions.
This renovation will add a new HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system, new lighting and ceiling tiles, and a sprinkler system.
Renovation of the third floor is currently planned for completion in May. However, this timetable may change depending on renovation progress and needs.
Facilities will reopen the third floor, and renovation will move on to the first and second floor. The exact details will come at a later date. Watch this space for further updates.
The HG-Z call number range in the Stacks of the library's physical books collection is unavailable. In addition, these services have been relocated during the renovation.
There are two methods for obtaining a book that was held on the third floor.
If the library can obtain the book, it will take about a week to arrive. Please plan your research needs accordingly.
WorldCAT Local can show what libraries in the area own the book. Here are the steps to follow.
A list will appear showing the closest libraries that own the book. If you find a library and you want to use their book, contact that library or check their catalog to make sure it is available for use. You can see the library's contact information with their "Library info" link.
The second floor has been temporarily divided into a quiet area, and a moderate volume area. The west side of the library is the quiet area and includes a computer lab. The middle and east side - straight ahead when getting off the elevators - are the moderate volume area.
Please be mindful of others' study needs with regard to volume on the second floor, especially during the renovation period.
You can contact the office providing that service, or the library's Reference department by one of the methods given on this page, for further assistance.
Contact the library's Reference department by one of the methods given on this page and we will answer your question as soon as possible. If it is a common or high priority question, this FAQ will be updated for its inclusion.
