The Asian Library will undergo extensive renovations to its top and main floors starting in the Spring of 2018 that will allow for improvements to student study areas, seminar space and programming.

Beginning March 1, access to the upper floor of the Library will be restricted. Essential items in the library’s collection have been relocated to the lower floor to facilitate use, while all other material has been moved off-site and will be inaccessible for the duration of the construction, expected to be completed by early 2019.

Once construction is complete, material selected to return to the library will be returned gradually. Low-use material will be re-directed to PARC, our on-campus storage facility where they will continue to be available for check-out. Items moved out of the library will start to be available either back at the branch or in PARC by early 2019, with access to the full collection expected by summer of 2019.

Users requiring access to materials moved off-site are encouraged to use InterLibrary Loan in the interim.

Any questions about the renovation can be directed to Shirin Eshghi, Head, Asian Library.
