Some of you may have noticed the changes taking place on the 3rd floor recently. The removal of the study carrels is to prepare for the bigger changes over the next few months.
Construction and reorganization will soon begin for the merger between the Periodicals/Microforms and Reserves/Media units. During this time, there will be a great deal of movement of furniture, shelving, and collections on the microform area of the 3rd floor. Eventually, room will be made in this area to house the Audio/Video and Reserves Collections currently located on the 4th floor.
This merger will better utilize the space on the 3rd floor and free up space on the 4th floor for future use. The media collection has grown over the years and is reaching the limit in the current location on 4th.
Expected completion of the reorganization is July 2009. Please excuse the commotion. It is our hope this will streamline services offered by both units and increase accessibility to the media and reserves collections.
