Pardon our dust (& noise)- we’re building a better library for you!


Beginning Feb. 14th through the end of May, there will be periodic increased noise levels on the 2nd floor while we move items from our north end journal stacks to make room for an improved, larger study area. Construction of the new space will begin in early June.

Alternate study areas are available on the 1st & 3rd floors. Should you need them, feel free to ask for earplugs at the Service Desk.
