Dafoe Library to undergo major upgrade in 2012
Posted Monday, December 12, 2011 2:13 PM
Hours change effective Dec. 19

An exciting new upgrade will enhance services and improve the overall appearance of the main floor of Elizabeth Dafoe Library when major construction starts next spring.

In order for work to begin and end on schedule, preparatory work will begin December 2011. During this time, the library will remain open, with the noisiest work done at night while the library is closed. Scaffolding and temporary walls will be erected and floor tile and carpet removed in some areas.

Effective December 19, 2011, and continuing until April 2012, the library will close at 9:00 p.m. Monday to Friday.

Library hours elsewhere remain unchanged. The Sciences and Technology Library in Machray Hall remains open until 11:00 p.m. Monday to Friday. The Multi-Purpose Room (rooms 220 and 224) in University Centre will be available for studying 24/7 whenever scheduling allows.

Included in the series of upgrades to the main floor of the Elizabeth Dafoe Library is the relocation of the library entrance. There will also be upgrades to the heating, lighting and electrical capacities. To improve library services, soft seating will be installed and approximately 40 new seats added. Circulation and reference help will be moved to a single service, with self-serve machines for borrowing books and other items. There will also be a self-serve reserve room, where reserve materials can be copied without signing them out.

Major construction is scheduled to begin in mid-April and completed by September 1, 2012.
