Hayden Reading Room Improvements

Posted July 15th, 2010 by mit-admin

The Hayden Reading Room is undergoing renovation work this summer. Construction began after closing on Friday, May 21, at 7pm.

The construction work will  continue through August.

In the current stage of the project (effective date: July 16), the collections on the first floor are closed for browsing or retrieval. Use Barton’s Request button to have materials retrieved for you. We will also retrieve materials on-demand if you’re already in the library.

Benefits to the Hayden Library include:

  • New Energy Efficient Lighting
  • Improved safety with sprinkler system upgrade
  • New Carpet, Acoustical Ceiling Tiles, and Paint

During the project portions of the collections on the first floor will not be browsable. Use Barton’s Request button to have them retrieved for you. We will also retrieve materials on-demand if you’re already in the library.

If you have further questions regarding access to materials, do so online or see the Hayden desk staff.
