News: Straight from the Stacks
09/18/2012: PLEASE NOTE that many items with call numbers falling within the QA through QD ranges are not able to be shelved in the stacks at this time. We are working to shift the collection and make room for the 800 new items moved to Mullen from the Physics Library, but this project will take some time. While shifting takes place, all books from Physics collection that cannot be shelved properly in the general stacks will be shelved in the overflow area in 1 South. If you cannot find an item in the general stacks, please be sure to look in the overflow shelves as well. Many thanks for your patience.
