Along with the recent recarpeting of the First and Second Floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library, some other reorganization of the physical plant is taking place.  Included in this reorganization is a new location for the Current Periodicals shelves.  Current issues of periodicals are now located in the shelves found to the left shortly after entering the Ralph Brown Draughon Library from the Mell Street entrance (i.e., the entrance that faces Haley Center) close to the former location of the New Books shelves.

New carpeting has been installed on the First and Second Floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library!

Some final adjustments are being made and furniture is being placed in new locations.  Other changes include moving the Information Desk from directly in front of the Mell Street entrance (Second Floor) to immediately upon one's right upon entering the Ralph Brown Draughon Library.  Public access computers (i.e., computers available for the general public) are being moved to the First Floor immediately across from the Circulation Desk by the Parking Deck entrance.  Due to the need to install new telecommunications lines, etc. a two-week delay is expected before these public access computers will be available for use.
