The first phase of a complete renovation of the Arts Library has begun. Some arts and music collections and services have been relocated in preparation for the construction. We realize that this renovation will at times be noisy and disruptive, especially during demolition activities. We have implemented measures to help mitigate noise and dust, and also have ear plugs available for patrons at our desk. During the academic year 08-09 all Arts Library services including media (audio, film and image) access and reserves as well as information and reference assistance for all of the arts (art, architecture, film, music) will be offered from the former Music, Film & Video Library desk. The good news is in spite of this renovation, we have expanded our service desk hours. We appreciate your patience and understanding during the continuing renovation activities.
