Enhancing Student Study Space

Between now and next fall, many changes will be made in the library (e.g., moving the print collection on the 5th floor to the 4th floor, removing/relocating stacks, new carpeting) to allow for new student study furniture and spaces on the 5th floor. All these changes will mean some inconveniences to those who normally use the 4th and 5th floors in the library. However, the result will be greatly enhanced student study space. We apologize for the inconvenience.
