“Off hours” work has been scheduled in preparation for the first floor construction phases that will begin at the end of exams. Starting at 2 a.m. on Tuesday, December 7, workers will construct a temporary entrance and ramp on the north side of the building in the reference reading room just to the east of the Café. This temporary entrance will be necessary in order to close the front entrance on December 17 to accommodate construction in that location of the building. Workers will also put up one of the first floor construction barriers at this time. Impacted reference collections have already been moved to the south wall proximate to the compact shelving in the basement.
