Other Impacts

Library Orientations (held in the Library classroom- L-228): In Fall 2015, the Library classroom will be inaccessible, so ALL Library orientations and information literacy sessions will need to be completed in the regularly assigned course classroom or online using the Virtual Library Orientation.

Access to Books: Books in the Library stacks will be relocated to a room on the 2nd floor in Linganore which will be closed to the public. A Courier Service from the Front Desk  is available to retrieve the books in a timely manner. Requests can be made in-person in L106 or through our online book request form.

Course Reserves will be located behind the Front Desk of L-106.

Access to Computers: Anticipating the need for student computer access while the Library is closed, Room L-116 will serve as an open computer lab for students and/or for quiet study. A list of other study spaces on-campus is also available.

Please let us know if you have any questions regarding the renovation and the locations of services for summer and fall.
