No food or drink in the library, please.

What could you possibly learn on a library tour?

    – How many floors are in Greenfield (answer: 2, but can you find the second one?).

    – How to find videos, DVDs, CDs, scores, and of course books in the library catalog.

    – How many fantastic online resources are available via the library.

    – How to roll open the compact shelving in the Greenfield basement. You’ll be awed by the laws of physics.

    – Meet at least one library staff member!

    – Find out what the Music Library is all about (sounds obvious, but go find out!).


    BE SURE TO HAVE YOUR FALL 2009 STICKER ON YOUR ID SO YOU CAN GET INTO THE BUILDING.

    Students, go to Finance/Student Financial Services (Hamilton Hall) to get your sticker.

    Faculty and staff, go to Personnel (Hamilton Hall) for your sticker.

    Please note that while tours are open to the UArts community, only students may enter the drawing.  You don’t have to be a new student to take a tour: a number of students take the tour every semester and say they always learn something new.

    See you in the library!

Update on Greenfield Library Renovations

Exciting news! The painting and drilling for new electrical outlets and network ports have been completed, and we have just heard that the furniture is ready to be shipped. Thank you to the students, faculty, and staff who have used the library during the renovations for your patience and understanding. It wasn’t easy to work in the library or even in offices adjacent to the library during the noisy drilling.

Once all the furniture is installed, we hope that you find that the library is a more inviting and comfortable place to work or just visit.
