FAQs and Updates

Will the Libraries close at any point to accommodate construction?

No. Allen Library will remain open during the renovation; however, there will be periods of loud noises and disruptions from new product installation including utility outages. Planned disruptions will be coordinated with building facility managers in advance with notices and signage of disruptions posted as required.

Will the construction impact the ability to access materials?

Moving items off-site will not impact access to materials. All materials located in off-campus facilities are easily accessible — see the Auxiliary and Baker Auxiliary Stacks Retrieval.

What about study space? Will this take away critically-needed study areas?

The existing space in Allen South is primarily shelving, with limited study desks, and the impact on individual study space will be minimal.
