Renovations @ the Oviatt
What's coming on the second floor?
- A new, environmentally controlled, secure closed stacks area, which will contain rare books, artifacts, and archival collections for Special Collections and Archives.
- A new public research area (Special Collections and Archives Reading Room), which will be available for students, faculty, and staff of CSUN, and any others who need to use our collections for their research.
What is the impact during construction?
- The area will be walled off and will not be accessible to the public during construction. We ask that Library users move to the upper floors and the East side of the building to avoid construction-related noise and dust. Updates on the construction will be given at the Oviatt Library’s website on this page.
Will Special Collections & Archives be open?
During the renovation, normal operations will continue in the current Special Collections and Archives department in the West wing. Researchers should check with the department for possible temporary short term closures at (818) 677-2832 or firstname.lastname@example.org
When will the project be finished?
The project is slated for completion mid-Fall semester 2015.
What about the study carrels on the 2nd Floor?
The study carrels will be moved to another location in the Oviatt Library.
The opening of the Learning Commons in August 2013 marked the achievement of the first in a number of initiatives that will change the face of our facility and our services. Please check this page often for news about our ongoing and upcoming renovation projects.
