Library Storage Facility Closure

Last updated: 1/13/2020

Most library materials in the Library Storage Facility in Sullivan Center are currently unavailable because mold was detected in the lower level of the building. Much of the Library Storage Facility will be inaccessible for an indeterminate amount of time while the area is remediated. We are actively working with the university facilities department to restore complete access as soon as possible. Recent items in the G-H call number ranges and dissertations are available to request.

What if I’m not able to get a copy through interlibrary loan, or the lending library cannot provide a long enough loan time for my needs?
