Exterior Library Entrance Construction

The exterior entrance at the northeast corner of the SRC Building, outside of the 2nd floor entrance to the Library, will be closed for renovations from Thursday, October 18, 2018, through January 18, 2019.

For the duration of the construction project, the alternate entry to the north side of the SRC Building will be through SRC door #1. SRC door #1 is located west of SRC door #2, near the Bookstore entrance. You will then need to use the stairs or the elevator inside door #1 to access the second level.

As always, we thank you for your patience and cooperation during this construction.
