There is an on-going shifting project on the 3rd floor of Cooper Library. We are moving materials and rearranging some shelves and taking down others to make more space for you.
We realize that normally the 3rd floor is pretty quiet even though parts of it are green study zones. Unfortunately, there’s no way to quietly take down metal shelves and we apologize for that.
Signs have been added to the space so it’s easier to tell where the work is being done and we promise that we’re working a quickly as possible. Also, no work will go on at night; it’s an 8:00am to 5:00pm work day.
Other quiet or silent spaces are available on the 1st and 2nd floors. Have you seen the new study carrels on the 1st floor? Check them out.
Also, we’re working on opening up more study space on the 3rd floor in the area that was formerly Special Collections and Archives and before that Cooper Cafe (Rooms 311/301/301a).
