Copley Renovations Update – Week 13

We can see light at the end of the tunnel! A crane placed the HVAC system in Copley Library and it was installed last Friday.

Currently, the library is being thoroughly cleaned, new filters are being put in vents, and library departments are moving back into their offices. We appreciate your patience during this summer project, but it’s another step to a better Copley Library.

Hang tight! We are working diligently to make sure the entire library is open and accessible by the start of the semester. We look forward to seeing you in less than two weeks!

Copley Renovations Update – Week 12

Welcome back to our Copley main level resources!

Just a dozen more ceiling tiles to replace on Copley main level!

Wow, look at this! We are (almost) back to normal on the Copley main level, with that level’s HVAC work completed and most cleanup accomplished. The Access Services desk is completely accessible, as are the media cabinets, patron workstations, and the reference collection. This area of the library is still being cooled with fans.

 

There will be an electrical shutdown on Friday, August 12th, from 4AM-8AM.  It is not expected to impact Copley Library opening on time Friday morning.

 

 

Copley Lower Level stacks are still off-limits.

Copley Lower Level stacks, covering LC call number ranges A-L, are still restricted for access. The Mother Hill Reading Room and Camino lower level stacks, ranges P-Z and our print periodicals, are open for business!

Copley Renovations Update – Week 11

It has been a long and arduous process but things are beginning to look like normal at Copley Library! The Main Floor is slowly being cleaned up, ceiling tiles are being put back in, and most areas are becoming available again for patrons.

Many of the tables for studying, desktop computers, Light Reading books and Reference books can now be accessed by all patrons. Printing services and laptop/charger check-outs are still available at the Front Desk.

Almost back to normal

The lower level of Copley Library is still currently being worked on and the Copley Stacks (call numbers of A – L) are closed to patrons but the Camino Stacks (books with call numbers of P-Z and all journals) are available. The Mother Hill Reading Room is open and the books in this area (call numbers M, N and TR) are accessible. If you are looking for a book and we cannot get access to it because of the renovations, you can always try to order it through Circuit, and it will be delivered here in a couple of days.
