A start-of-term update on the on-going renovations in Hagerty Library: Bookworm Café -- Reference Staff Relocated -- Compact Shelving -- New Locker Locations Bassem-Gabra-in-24x7-room.gifBookmark Café Students were excited to begin using the Bookmark Café in December, but will find more changes now and through the coming weeks. Relax in the comfy armchairs; browse the recent periodicals on the newly-installed shelves. Vending machines have been relocated to this area from the lower level, and one copier moved from the reference area. Pending finalization of city permits, the coffee counter will open next week; 24-hour access to the Café is expected to begin by mid-terms. Reference Staff Relocated Hagerty Library reference librarians, who had moved to the third floor during the Law School building construction, have moved back into their former offices on the first floor. Space previously used for other purposes on the lower level, first and second floors is being converted for use as Group Study Rooms.
