FAES Library Will Close for Renovations

March 4, 2014

The Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (FAES) Library will be closed for renovations from March 7, 2014 through early 2015.

FAES Library services will move to Howlett Hall, 2001 Fyffe Ct., Room 322 beginning Monday, March 17. Hours will be Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. The FAES Library collection is available for delivery to the Howlett Hall location. Other services will include Closed Reserves, pickup of items requested, current periodicals and reference service.

Please be sure materials being sent to FAES arrive prior to March 7. If you are not sure they will arrive before March 7, hold them until March 17 and send them to the Room 322 Howlett Hall address.

The renovation will create a new CFAES Library and Student Success Center, with attractive spaces for study, collaboration, consultation with library staff and others, and special events hosted by the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Science.

Features include five group study rooms with network connectivity, a large open study area with flexible seating, a computer bar with public access computers, and much improved lighting and furnishings throughout. A Coffee Café will also be available in an adjacent lobby area also undergoing renovation. As in the past, the FAES Library and Student Success Center will offer a focused print collection for the research and study needs of constituents in the College, but will emphasize electronic access to information, and collaboration among students, CFAES faculty, library staff, and others in the College and beyond.
