The library will remain open, however the Lamar Alexander Building LOBBY will be CLOSED for renovation March 13 – April 28.

All students and faculty will need to enter and exit the building from the north (Madison Ave.) side of the basement level.

A card swipe has been installed and everyone has access just as they did on the ground level.

Also, the elevators will be disabled from exiting on the lobby level.

In case of an emergency, people will exit the building from the stairs, directly out the building and not through the lobby.

We apologize for this inconvenience.
