Lit & Lang Renovations Begin

Sep 7, 2010


Renovations are beginning in 225 Library for the Spring 2011 launch of the new Literatures and Languages Library.

The Literatures and Languages Library will be the new home for Library services and collections supporting research, teaching, and learning in disciplines related to the study of English and Western European literatures and languages, comparative literature, cinema studies, linguistics, and translation studies, and will build upon the traditions of service currently found in the English Library and the Modern Languages and Linguistics Library.

While 225 is under construction, the Slavic Reference Service will be moving in Fall 2010 to temporary quarters in 200 Library (the Main Library Reading Room).  The Slavic Reference Service will become part of the new International and Area Studies Library to be housed in 321 Library (the current English Library) once that space has been renovated to suit its new use. All Library services will remain available to their users throughout this transition.

The Literatures and Languages Library is scheduled to open in 225 Library in Spring 2011, and the International and Area Studies Library is scheduled to open in Fall 2011. Details about both projects are available on the Library's New Service Models website.
