How could the Harrison University Libraries expansion project impact you? You can find out each week in UNotes until the project ends. Will publications you're looking for be in a different place? Will there be drilling during a certain time period? Will there be fewer computers available? Check the latest "What's Going on at the Library" for updates (like the one below) before you go there.

Construction noise continues between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., as crews level the floor of the new Allen Library collections area and install rails for the Library’s compact shelving. This work is expected to last through the week of March 20. It is recommended visitors avoid the new Allen collection area while the rail is being installed.

Soffit framing, drywall, and finishing work on the third floor will cause noise from 6 to 10 a.m. This may be disruptive to students, faculty, and guests.

The Harrison University Libraries Expansion and Renovation project began in May 2016, and will continue through spring 2017. This project brings the physical space, technology, and infrastructure of the University Libraries in line with our evolving understanding of teaching and learning, benefiting the University's community of learners, scholars, creators, and supporters. The project comprises three essential components: building an addition to the back of the Harrison University Libraries building, renovating the Mortensen Library, and moving the Allen Library to a newly renovated space.
