Highly Paged Books: First Relocation Phase Completed, Second Phase Underway

2015 Book Stacks Move, Phase 2

The Pollak Library has listened to and is responding to faculty and student concerns about the inability to browse book stacks on the earthquake-damaged floors in Library South. These interim steps allow us to make books available for browsing again prior to the building being renovated.

As part of our continuing effort to keep the campus community updated on the status of this ongoing 4-part move, the Pollak Library is pleased to report additional progress.

  • PHASE ONE (Completed): We have finished moving all of the history books (call numbers D through F) into the open stacks area of the Library North Basement (PLN-30).
  • PHASE TWO (In Progress): This phase has been revised since our initial announcement (swapped with the original Phase Three). We are currently moving language and literature books to the 3rd Floor of Library North. Call numbers P through PQ have been moved, and call numbers PR are in progress.

To date, the Pollak Library has relocated more than 282,000 items, including moving more than 206,000 books from Library South to Library North. We update our online catalog weekly as to the new location of our books.

This work is being done by Interim Stacks Coordinator Dan Phillips and student assistants working under his direction. We would like to thank Dan and his students for their excellent work!
