Library Moves

Posted by isulib on March 16, 2009

Just before Spring Break, the library staff began a major book shifting project that will bring a major change to the library’s layout.  If you’ve been on the second floor, you’ve probably noticed.  The plan is to shift our journal collection (except for the Current Periodicals on the Main Floor) into the Basement.  The regular book collection (or as we like to call them the monographs) will be moved to the 2nd and 3rd floor.  The Lower Level will still contain our Government Documents collection, but a large space will be made available for additional study areas.

The first step is the backshifting that is occurring on the 2nd floor.  Books on that floor are being moved back, so that the shelves at the front will be opened up.  Once that is complete, we will start moving the books from the basement up to the 2nd floor.  We will provide signs to indicate where books will be located because things will be a bit out-of-order until the process is complete.  Check back here every Monday for an update on the process.

Currently, we are backshifting the 2nd floor collection.  Backshifting is currently in taking place in the N’s (art).
