During July and August, you may notice changes as we install new carpet and paint upstairs. This first phase of the LADC's renovation is scheduled from July 9 to August 24 (but we hope to finish by August 16th).

The process will involve moving books onto temporary shelving located on the ground floor and in the CADC Gallery, before the work of carpet installation and painting is to be completed on the 2nd floor from July 16 to August 3. The assembly of temporary shelving is under way, and the shifting of books from upstairs began this week (see photos below).

We plan to have all of the books assembled in call number order on the temporary shelves (and the shelves marked with call number signs) by next week. Although the stacks will be marked, they might be difficult to navigate, so we will be happy to help you find anything you need. LADC staff and student employees will also be able to retrieve books on demand during the move.
