The Library’s 6th floor was renovated this summer. We added two new seminar rooms (620A & 620B) and eight new faculty offices. The online library maps have been updated to reflect these changes. Most of the books on the 6th floor have been shifted to accommodate these changes; be sure to check the call number signs posted on the end of each row to locate the books you need.
