The GSU Library is part of a building renovation that will begin the weekend of April 5. We are looking forward to this much needed upgrade to our library. There will be a new entrance to the library, private study areas and a 21st Century upgrade of furniture just to offer a few highlights.
The library will remain open through the renovation and library faculty and staff are committed to providing all students, faculty and the GSU community with seamless service as we approach finals and the end of the semester.
The first major change will come on Monday morning, April 7. At that time the current entrance to the library will be closed. The new library entrance will be in the same general location, but directly opposite the current library entrance. The new entrance will be through the balcony emergency doors which have traditionally been kept closed.
The new colorful Friends of the Library drop box will be placed outside the entrance doors for after-hours drop off. The library return slot that you are accustomed to using will not be available.
During the renovation, the Hall of Honors will be serving as a computer lab. Movement of the computers from the library to the Hall of Honors will begin this week. The library will retain 28 computers for student, faculty and community use. A pay for print station, photocopier, change machine, fax/scanner, and microform scanner will also be available.
Separate research, circulation, technology, and writing center desks will be maintained. Library faculty availability will remain the same, and library hours from now through the end of the semester will also remain the same.
“We have made every effort to preserve and maintain our customer service,” said Lydia Morrow Ruetten, Dean of the GSU Library. “We will be sharing information regularly until the renovation is completed in mid-August.”
