Science Library Closure

For most of the summer, Telford Science Library will be closing Levels 2 and 4 (upstairs and downstairs) to our users, with plans to reopen by the start of the Fall Term.

This change is designed to protect visitors’ safety during some remodeling in the Science Library during the summer.

Level 3, the “main” level, will remain open as much as possible this summer for browsing current journals, use of computers and printers, and to utilize circulation services.

For W&L researchers’ convenience, we will provide a link in the library catalog to request books to be pulled from the Science Library stacks, with a 24-hour turnaround. These items will be held for pick-up at the circulation desk on Level 3. You can see this example in the library catalog; click on the link “Request for pick-up at Telford Science Library Circulation Desk.”

If you have questions, please contact Science Librarian Mary Abdoney.
