Altgeld Hall renovation project: anticipated impacts on Mathematics Library services

The Mathematics Library will close at 5pm on May 12, 2023. At that time, we will begin the process of moving the library collection to a temporary space in the Main Library book stacks (1 East area). Appointments to browse the Math Library stacks will be available on a case-by-case basis from May 15-26, 2023. Please email math@library.illinois.edu to request an appointment.

Sometime this summer, date to be determined, Course Reserves and unbound journals will be moved to a temporary location in Grainger Engineering Library.

For full access to the Mathematics Library stacks, we recommend visiting the library before May 12, 2023.

During the move, we recommend requesting books for pick up at other campus libraries. For details, see: requesting books for pick up at other campus libraries. Books can be returned at any campus library or any campus book return locations. Between May 30 – July 15, portions of the collection will be unavailable for short periods while they are in transit. Any requests for a book that is in transit will be completed when the book is on the shelf in its new, temporary location.

Mathematics Library staff will continue to be available throughout this process by phone and email. We look forward to continuing to provide responsive service during the renovation, and after, in a refurbished and improved Mathematics Library space.
