3rd Floor Update!

The 3rd floor of the I.D. Weeks library building is now open. Please pardon our mess though!

Extensive shifting of the book collection on the east side of the 3rd floor will continue throughout the summer AND that means it will be a little noisier on 3rd than usual. If you have trouble finding an item during the shift, please inquire at the Circulation desk.
