Information for Researchers and Visitors
Can I still do research at the Rubenstein Library during the renovation?
Yes! The Rubenstein Library’s public reading room has moved to a temporary location on the 3rd floor of Perkins Library for the duration of the renovation through June 2015. Download a PDF map to our reading room.
We will be closed to research visits from Wednesday, July 1, 2015 until Monday, August 24, 2015. During this time staff offices and collections will be moving. We will reopen in our newly renovated building on Monday, August 24, 2015. These closure dates are subject to change. Please get in touch with us if you have any questions about planning a visit.
When will the Rubenstein Library’s reading room move from its temporary location on the 3rd floor of Perkins to the new space?
Our current reading room space will be closed beginning on Wednesday, July 1, 2015. We will reopen in the renovated space on Monday, August 24, 2015. Staff will be moving their workspaces and collection materials during this time, so we will be unable to accommodate research visits.
How will the renovation affect my research visit?
Most of collections are now stored at our off-site repository, the Library Service Center, and it takes us two business days to retrieve materials for you to use. Please register as a researcher and place your requests two business days in advance of your visit so we have time to deliver your research materials to our reading room.
