  • New computers
    • 2nd floor lab
    • Quiet study space
  • New furniture
    • 2nd floor lobby
    • 2nd and 3rd floor quiet study sections
    • 2nd floor lab

While the renovations are occurring, upgrade areas will be temporarily closed.  There will also be limited access to some of the printed collections and book stack areas.  During this time, please visit Access Services desk (on the 2nd floor) for digital options and further assistance.  The dates for the area closings will be communicated to the campus at a later date.  Thank you in advance for your patience as we work to provide additional services.
