Shifting the Collection

You may have noticed that the library is engaged in a rapid shifting of the collection. This undertaking was necessary to make sure that we had enough room on our shelves for five years' growth. The existing arrangement of the collection does not maximize shelf space, and this project is intended to remedy this oversight.

In addition to an allowance for growth, the new arrangement should simplify the shelving arrangement. The periodicals collection will be housed completely on the lower level below the main reading room, and the foreign/international materials will be integrated into the regular classified collection. The shifting should be completed before the fall semester officially begins, and we hope that you'll find the new arrangment easier to use.
