Library construction to begin this week

 Permanent link

By now most have noticed that the library move has taken place. The library entrance is now through the balcony fire doors. There are computer stations on the balcony and inside of the library, but there is a significant reduction in the number of computers in the library. During the peak times between 2:30—4:30 p.m. and 5:30—7:30 p.m., the library computers are all frequently in use. However, there is now a computer lab set up in the Hall of Honors (across from the bookstore) with printers. The ACS lab will also be open through the end of classes. If there are any issues with finding a computer during the library peak times, please visit the Hall of Honors or the ACS lab.

“The GSU community has been most cooperative and flexible with us during this time of change,” said Lydia Morrow Ruetten, dean of the GSU Library. “Because our space is limited, we are only able to have one person at the circulation desk and in most cases, one person at the reference desk. We are working to provide everyone with excellent service, but from time to time there might be a need to wait,” she said.

It is likely that there will be more noise and dust in the library during construction. It is expected that the renovation will be completed by the middle of August, 2014.
