If libraries have international visitors coming that want to see several places in the library, these visits should be coordinated through the University Librarians office.
The divisions are consumed by Oak Street and Voyager discussions. The committee will look at this again at the end of April.

Espresso Coffee Shop will open outside of Undergrad on March 6. Therefore the food policy will need to be enforced. There is no food or drink allowed in the library with the exception of drinks in spill-proof containers and with the exception of Rare Book and Collections where no drinks are allowed at all. Espresso sells such containers or you may provide your own; they plan to have containers with the library logo on them in the future. Espresso will be open the same hours as the Undergraduate Library.
