Library Construction and Service Disruption: May 29 - late-August

Beginning Monday, May 29, the Library will begin preparation for installation of compact shelving on level 9 north.
Please be aware of the following impacts:
The collection on level 9 north will not be accessible by patrons. Patrons can request materials from this area by submitting requested call numbers to the General Services Desk in person or by emailing the request to gsd.library@uleth.ca. Requests will be retrieved within 24-hours of submission.
Throughout the installation process, there may be additional dust and noise associated with the work. Level 11 will be least impacted by the work.
Main Collection materials from level 10 north and Government Documents from level 10 south will be relocated to level 9 as part of this project. Notifications will be issued when this phase of the project commences.
The project is expected to conclude late-August and we apologize for any inconvenience in advance.
