Engineering Library Transition Update May 20, 2011

As the Engineering Library continues its transition to a virtual library the physical collections will move out of Carpenter Hall this summer. Details, updates, and background are available at:

We will begin moving books on May 23 and the move will be complete by the end of June. All books that have circulated in the last five years will remain on central campus with about 20,500 going to Uris, 3,500 to Math, 1,800 to Mann and 600 to Olin. The rest of the collection will move to the Annex. The circulation desk and stacks will remain open until June 30th from 9am to 5pm. Librarians Steven Rockey, Jill Powell, and Jeremy Cusker will remain in their Carpenter offices and continue to assist users as in the past, enhancing their outreach efforts, building and stewarding the substantial and growing electronic collection. They can be reached individually or As in previous years, the upstairs ACCEL computer lab rooms will be closed for the summer beginning Friday, May 20. The reading room/study area, including the computer area, the group study rooms, and the Blue Room computer lab, will remain open on a 24/7 basis starting Wednesday June 1st coinciding with the start of summer classes for Engineering Coop students. Engineering paper reserves will be served from the Olin reserve desk for summer, and Uris reserve desk for fall and spring.

  1. The reading room will remain open and is already accessible to anyone with a Cornell ID using the keycard reader on the outside of the building, 24/7. The computers, both in the ACCEL labs and in the reading room, will remain in place. Also, the two librarians will also remain in the Carpenter Hall space.
