New International and Area Studies Library Opens!
The new International and Area Studies Library is open for business! After almost two years of planning, the resources of the African Studies Library, Asian Studies Library, Global Studies Virtual Library, Latin American and Caribbean Library, and Slavic, East European and Eurasian Library have come together to form a new unit – International and Area Studies Library - in Room 321 of the Main Library (formerly the English Library). Currently, the hours for the new unit are Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. but this may be expanded as we become further organized. Area specialist librarians continue to provide the same fine services and collections for your research, but until work on their new offices is complete, you might want to either email them directly or call (217) 333-1501 to make any appointments for research consultations or other services. A prototype website has been developed to assist you in accessing the IAS Library at http://www.library.illinois.edu/ias. We hope to see you soon and often
