In order to accommodate the construction schedule for the Library Building project, we had to close the faculty / graduate reading room in Library 426C as of Friday April 25th. The closure was necessary to allow us to move the Library Administrative offices and Government Publications staff off of the 5th and 6th floors.
We understand that closing this very popular study space, just before finals, will have a huge impact on the campus, particularly for Grad students. Some frequent users of the reading room have let us know how much they valued the room, and how upset they are to loose it, which has been great. Keep the comments coming. This is the beginning of a project scheduled to last for three years and the impacts on campus will be far reaching. A lot of planning has gone into how all of the units in the library building–Academic Technology, CTFD and the Leonard Library–will continue to provide services during this period. We hope that you will continue to let us know, via the Spotlight Blog and through other channels, when the changes we put in place don’t work for you, as well as when they do.
