Woodruff Library Level 1 Summer Renovations

Level 1 in Woodruff Library will be undergoing renovations this summer, starting on May 9th.  These renovations will add more seating, a variety of new furniture, and additional power outlets to the Learning Commons on Level 1.

To accomplish this goal, a large percentage of the microform and print government document collections on Level 1 will move to the Library Service Center over the summer.  The move is scheduled to be complete by early June, when construction will start.

During the project, the seating area of Peet’s café, the meditation room, and group studies on Level 1 will not be accessible. All student technology resources including printers and Mac and Windows workstations will be removed and stored during renovation; patrons may find workstations on Level 2 and the Music and Media Library.  Student Technology Support (STS) will remain open to students throughout the summer with consultations taking place inside the glass enclosure.

A small number of microform cabinets will remain on Level 1.  These cabinets will not be accessible to the public until the renovations are complete. Library Service Desk staff will retrieve reels from these cabinets while renovations are under way.  One microfilm scanner will be temporarily relocated to the Library Service Desk area on Level 2 during construction.  Please contact the Library Service Desk (servicedesk [at] mail [dot] library [dot] emory [dot] edu) for assistance in finding materials.

Collections that are moving to the Library Service Center will be unavailable while they are being moved, and the discoverE record will be temporarily removed from public view.  Once added to the Library Service Center, discoverE will reflect the new locations, and these collections will be available for requesting and delivery to the Library Service Desk.  Certain non-circulating collections, such as microforms, will only be available for in-house use.  Please be sure to contact the Library Service Desk as far in advance as possible to verify the availability of library materials.  You may also request materials, if eligible, through Interlibrary Loan.
