Summer Construction Update

May 25th, 2017 · No Comments

Summer construction projects in and around the Library will limit access to certain areas and collections. Regular updates will be sent to keep everyone on campus informed of service interruptions. Currently:

  • Plaza construction has meant the closing of the main Goldfarb and Farber entrances for the duration of the summer. Visitors may enter through the doors opposite Usdan. This work will also involve loud demolition and drilling work, which will be audible throughout the building, until approximately mid-late June.
  • From now until approximately June 9th, Farber Level 3 will be closed to all visitors, due to HVAC updates. However, the Getz Multimedia Lab will remain open during construction.
  • Visitors may speak with the Information & Borrowing desk for assistance with collections made inaccessible by the construction. Such requests may take longer to process, so your patience is appreciated.
We appreciate your patience as we make these much-needed improvements to the building.  Watch this space for updates!
