Starting Friday, March 20th, through Monday, March 30th, the Barker Reading Room will be closed. The Reading Room will reopen on Tuesday, March 31st.
We’re happy to announce that the walls are getting a fresh coat of paint and the study carrels are being refinished! These are the first steps in our plans for further renovations to be done over the summer of 2009.
Also, thanks to our Processing and Access Services teams, all Barker bound print journals have made it safe and sound to the Library Storage Annex where they won’t be exposed to leaks. The 8th floor of Barker is now closed until the Dome repairs are complete.
As a result of these two events, all unbound and current issues of journals have been moved to shelving on the 5th floor of Barker, just after the reference collection.
