Movin' On Up: New Location of the Reference Collection
If you have walked through campus recently, you have probably noticed that there are many changes taking place at the library. Over the winter break, services and collections from the first floor were moved to the second and third floors. We are especially thrilled about the move of the Reference collection to beautiful low shelving in the atrium on the second floor.
In anticipation of the move, last fall librarians evaluated the print volumes to insure that the “new” Reference collection was lean, mean and useful to all of our patrons – students, faculty, staff and community users. In addition to their clean lines and tidy appearance, the new shelves also make it easier to find and shelve reference materials.
For more details about the new Reference space and other changes in the library visit the Library Renovation Guide.
The guide includes:
- An overview of the renovation, what has happened already and what will be happening in the future.
- Where to find relocated study space, services, collections, and staff within the building.
- Updated floor plans.
A vitual tour of the future first floor, and photographs of the project.
- An online form to give us your feedback and comments about the renovation and construction.
