What's Up with the 3rd Floor South?

If you have been in the Marx Library lately, you might have noticed that the 3rd Floor South looks, well, a bit different.

This area will be the new home of the university's archives, The Doy Leale McCall Rare Book and Manuscript Library.  

As you can see, construction on the archives has not yet begun in the space, but don't worry--it's coming soon.

So while it looks a bit weird, you can still access the 3rd floor North, the computer lab, the 3rd Floor Restrooms, and stairwell from the space.

Week of Thanksgiving, November 25-November 27

Noise levels will be elevated this week due to saw noise.  There is also a unique burning smell.  So if you are sensitive to smells, you may want to avoid the 1st and 2nd floors of the Marx Library during construction hours, 7:45am-5pm.

Remember, the 3rd and 4th floors are free from construction noise, so they make a great place to study.

Also, follow us on Twitter @USA_Library for more up-to-the-minute construction updates.

Have a great Turkey Day! Continue reading →
