We're happy to report that the Heyns Reading Room and Rosberg Reading Room (both on the second floor of Doe Library) were reopened Monday November 14, ahead of schedule. The "browse" collection will return to the room on Tuesday.
These reading rooms had been closed for repairs related to the Doe Library dormer drains and gutter refurbishment project. Some work remains to be done along the east side exterior of the building and on the fourth floor of Doe Library, which we anticipate will be completed before the end of this semester.
Have a great research project from this past summer, or something great in mind for fall or spring of this academic year? Submit it for a chance to win up to $1,000!
