Effective immediately, a construction project in the Math Sciences Library will limit access to the library facility and materials. The construction includes the removal of the ceiling in the library, installation of new sprinkler systems and lighting, and a window replacement project.
For safety reasons patrons will not be permitted beyond the service desk in the front of the library. Staff will retrieve books and journals while the construction crew is at lunch or on break, or after the crew quits at 3:30 p.m. Also, the Math Sciences Library will not be available for people to sit and study; study carrels and chairs must be removed to make room for the construction crew to maneuver and store their supplies, and there will be noise and dust that will make quiet study impossible. Patrons are encouraged to use other libraries for their quiet study and computer needs. A full list is available at www.lib.purdue.edu/libraries.
Due to the construction project, summertime 2010 hours for the Math Sciences Library are 8am to 5pm, Monday-Friday, and closed on the weekends.
The staff in the Math Sciences Library will strive to operate with utmost flexibility, both with the construction crew and with patrons, while the project is completed, and thank everybody in advance for their patience during this process.
Update 5/21/10: The Mathematical Sciences Library will be closed on Monday morning, May 24th, while the construction crew removes the ceiling in the third floor hallway of the Mathematical Sciences Building.
Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the Math Sciences Library will open at noon on Monday, May 24th.
