Latest news: Construction in Shain Library scheduled during spring break

March 7, 2014

The early stages of Shain Library renovations continue, with work scheduled for both weeks of spring break. The library will be open during the break: Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

During the week of March 10-14, contractors will be installing the new compact shelving units on the lower level. This work will involve drilling and the placement of existing metal shelving units onto moving carriages.

Beginning on Monday, March 17, the journal collection that has been split in half and housed on two different floors since January will be reunited on the new compact shelving units on the lower level.

Work will also be taking place on the second and third floors of Shain Library throughout the break, including the installation of new shelving units on the second floor and the continued shifting of books and journals on both floors.

There will be updated signage and maps throughout the library to indicate where materials are located, and assistance is always available at the reference desk and from library staff.

As with all construction projects that are part of the renovations of Shain, every effort is being made to minimize disruption and noise.

Please direct any questions about the renovation to For questions about library services, visit Ask a Librarian.
