Changes Coming to Physics Library Beginning May 18, 2019

May 2, 2019

The Libraries will begin work on the on the Astronomy, Mathematics, and Physics Libraries’ consolidation project  this month (May 2019) and through 2020. When complete, there will be a combined library, known as the Astronomy, Mathematics, and Physics Library.

Here’s an updated overview of the project timeline:

Summer 2019

Libraries open: Astronomy

  • Astronomy will be open for the summer and will remain open through May 2020.
  • Physics Library closes May 18, 2019, and the space will remain closed through Fall 2020.
  • Math Library closes temporarily May 18, 2019. Reopens on August 26, 2019 for the fall semester.
  • Collections work will be done while spaces are closed. We expect collections to remain requestable.

Fall 2019

Libraries open: Astronomy, Math

  • Math Library reopens on August 26, 2019 for the fall semester.
  • Math Library closes permanently December 23, 2019.
  • Collections work will be done while spaces are closed. We expect collections to remain requestable.

Spring 2020

Libraries open: Astronomy Library, NEW: Astronomy, Mathematics and Physics Library

  • Astronomy, Mathematics and Physics Library, the combined library, re-opens in January 2020 in the current Physics Library space.
  • Astronomy Library closes permanently May 2020.

 

As this project moves forward, we will continue to provide you frequent communication. We encourage you to visit the Libraries’ websites for information about this transition including an FAQ page.

The Libraries are dedicated to maintaining a staff presence and continuing to provide robust library services. We believe this is an opportunity to update the current Physics Library and will provide more information on the timeline as additional detailed planning occurs.
