The construction of the Mell Street Classroom building started on December 14, 2015 with an estimated completion date of August 2017. Library patrons might want to consult the RBD Book Shift & Construction Updates link . The link is located through the Auburn University Libraries homepage by clicking on the Subject Guides tab and then the All Guides link and then by scrolling down the list and clicking on RBD Book Shift & Construction Updates link .
This is a major construction project and it will extend physically into the Ralph Brown Draughon Library. Consequently, there has been some significant shifting of the book collections.
Library patrons are also reminded that the Mell Street entrance to the Ralph Brown Draughon Library will be closed for construction for the duration of the Mell Classroom project.
The First Floor Parking Deck entrance will be the main library entrance and exit until the project's completion in August 2017.
