The official start of Fall 2018 semester is just days away. It’s time, then, for an update on the library’s HVAC renovation.
(If this is all news to you, catch up on the renovation history here.)
We will be moving out of our temporary home in Arts & Sciences G-101 soon, but the library building will still be inaccessible. We know that this may cause extra inconvenience during the start of the semester, but we, as always, are committed to providing excellent service and keeping you informed. Read below for how to access the library from now through Fall semester.
Please be aware that the information below may change due to unexpected delays. Please return to the blog or follow us on Twitter for the latest status updates.
