With the forthcoming construction of the Mell Street Classroom building due to start soon, 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 is some significant shifting of the book collections.  Ground breaking takes place in December after Final Exams.

The SGA (Student Government Association) has purchased three Kwikboost charging lockers.  Two are located in the Ralph Brown Draughon Library (First Floor and Third Floor) and another in the Student Center building.

Each individual charging locker can store, charge and secure cell phones, smart phones, tablets, iPads, Chromebooks, and other electronic devices.  The lockers work like a hotel safe and provide digital locks for individual 24/7 use.   The compartments are equipped with charging cables and can be upgraded to include power outlets and USB outlets.

Please contact the Circulation Desk located on the First Floor (by the Parking Deck Entrance) of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library for assistance.  Their telephone number is (334) 844-1701.
