Loading Library Hours...


The flooring in Ricker Library will be removed and replaced this summer. The project will begin the week of May 14 and conclude sometime before August 10. During this time the Ricker Library space will be inaccessible and the collections moved to temporary locations. All Ricker Library materials will be available by request only. Requested items will be available for pickup in 210D Architecture (our staff office area) or for retrieval at other campus libraries. Faculty and staff can also request delivery through campus mail. Any library and I-Share books can be returned to any library on campus. We will continue to accept returns, but they should be dropped off in our offices rather than the usual library book drop. Please contact us if we can be of any further assistance. Apologies for any inconvenience!
