When the book movers left today there were only a few more bookcarts left to be shelved on the 6th floor. This means they’ll be starting on the 5th floor sometime tomorrow. The move is going well, and it’s nice to have all our books back together again. Some have been in deep storage and are very dusty. Others were in the 50 UN Plaza building, and the rest were in the now permanently closed First Floor Library. It’s good to have space for everything.

The open area near the 6th floor elevators is a great place to store book carts waiting to be unpacked.
These shelves were filled in only two days!
This is one of the rooms we’ve been using to store books during the renovation. The books were arranged on shelves in the same order as they would be in an open library. When a student or faculty member needed a book, they would fill out a form, or request the title online, and a staff member would “page” the book from these shelves.
The wooden cart, with 3 shelves on each side, is filled with books and then shrink-wrapped for transport to the new library.
The 5th and 6th floors of 200 McAllister are complete, the 4th floor is still in progress. Last week we received a shipment of books that had been placed in deep storage back in the summer of 2005. These books, boxed and on pallets, await the movers who will start taking them to 200 next week.
We are starting the move with items slated for the 6th floor. If all goes well, we will add items slated for the 5th floor the following week and have two streams of books being moved at once. The book carts will be color-coded so it will be easy to see at a glance which books go where.
The Skyroom is open extended hours until Wednesday, May 16th. The hours are Monday through Thursday from 10:00 to 10:00, Friday and Saturday from 10:00 to 5:00.
The Library will close for the summer on May 20, 2007 and will re-open before the new school year.
