Pardon Our Progress

- Eugene McDermott Library is expanding student study areas -

 From May 20 to May 27, the areas behind the Information Commons toward the back of 2nd floor will be drilled for wiring new computer stations and study tables.

The work will result in new access holes in the floors that will be covered with orange cones until the wiring is complete.

Please be careful while the drilling is in progress and in the coned areas afterward.

We regret any disruption this may cause but hope you understand while we continue to improve our services to students.

Peaceful here, one feels.
