When the Undergraduate Library's extensive repair and renovation process begins Dec. 19, the system of operations at Davis Library will experience a few modifications of its own.
Most noticeable of these changes include an increase in the library's hours of operation beginning Jan. 9, according to associate University librarian for public services Diane Strauss.
Davis will offer 24-hour service with the exception of Friday nights from 10 p.m. to 10 a.m. and Saturday nights from 10 p.m. to 11 a.m.
Davis will also see other changes over the Winter Break.
Strauss said the process of moving much of the Undergrad's resources to alternate locations on campus will occur before Jan. 9.
Most services will be relocated to Davis, although some will be housed in the Wilson Library annex.
"We've explored lots of possibilities concerning the (Undergraduate) library's distribution of services (during the renovation period)," Strauss said. "We feel the way we finally decided to distribute the services and collections is best."
The Undergrad's entire nonprint and book collection will be relocated to the annex behind Wilson, where they will only be accessible via paper and electronic retrieval requests.
Remaining library sources, including reading reserves, electronic reserves, the browsing collection and current Undergraduate Library subscriptions, will be housed in Davis.
