What’s Going On With The Library?
If you've been in or around the library lately, you will have noticed lots of activity in preparation for the consolidation of the Mart and Loop campuses. We've provided the information below to answer many of the questions we've been asked and to keep everyone up to date. If you have any other questions, please stop by room 1085 to get your answer and to check out the space.
Where is the library moving to?
Room 1085 will temporarily house the library until the end of Summer quarter. The library will then move back into a portion of its former space for the beginning of Fall 2014.
Where are all the books?
The library collection is in storage until construction is complete. There will be periodicals, reserve items, forecast materials, reference, new books and books that have been returned recently available in the temporary space.
Where are all the computers?
The temporary space will have 4 desktop computers. We will not have laptops available for checkout any longer. If you need to use a computer, there are computers available in the learning center (1219) and you are free to use any unoccupied computer lab.
Where are the copiers?
The temporary library will not have a copier. If you need to make copies, there is a copier located in the student lounge.
Where is all the other stuff (staplers, calculators, headphones, etc…)?
We still have it, just ask!
