Special Collections will be inaccessible Sept. 29 – Oct. 10

Library1928Preparations are under way to move the Mary Couts Burnett Library Special Collections vault to its new location later this month. Everything in the current vault will be transferred to the new vault, equipped with compact shelving.

The move is expected to take two weeks, Sept. 29 – Oct. 10. During that time, the Special Collections Reading Room will be closed. There will be no services available from the department since all Special Collections staff will be actively involved in the move. Rare book volumes and archival material will be in transition from one location to the other.

Please be aware of this two week cessation of service. Faculty and students must access needed material before the two week closure or wait until service is restored.

The website listing for Special Collections hours will be altered for those two weeks to further communicate this information.
