Using the Temporary Library: Home

Using the Temporary Library addresses the policies and processes relevant to temporary library services and users during the Barbour Library renovation.


The Barbour Library is closed for major renovations, and is slated to re-open by the beginning of the 2019-2020 academic year. Please visit us in the interim in our temporary library in the Kadel Dining Room, McNaugher Hall (campus map)! Our digital presence still resides at, and the library calendar hours found there apply to the temporary library. See the Accessing On-Campus Storage Items and Accessing Off-Campus Storage Items tabs on this guide for instruction on requesting circulating books.
