Biological sciences library moving to Dimond Library

April 10, 2014

This summer, the Biological Sciences Library will relocate from Kendall Hall to Dimond Library.

The library in Kendall Hall will close May 30. Materials will be moved to Dimond Library during June and July by a professional company experienced in relocating libraries. During that five-to-six week period, a page system will be used at Dimond to retrieve books for patrons.

The project involves culling resources from both libraries to make room for the combined materials.

There will be a shifting of books currently located on Levels 4 and 5. Additionally, bound periodicals will be integrated with other materials on Levels 4 and 5; journals and magazines that used to be on a separate floor will now be together with the other resources.

Level 2 will house the natural sciences resource center, and include the biological science library and the science materials already located in Dimond Library. The center will have a librarian dedicated to the area, with other services added once that position has been filled. The center will be located in the site of the current periodical room, where a service desk, computers, seating and desks will be added, as will a faculty office.

The entire project is expected to be finished by August, 15th.
