As the Academic Commons Penrose Library Building Project continues, we wanted to give an update on all the final moves that happened last week (July 5-8, 2011).
Most Penrose Library services (Circulation, Reserves, Research Center, Writing Center, computer lab, study space) are available at the interim location, Penrose@Driscoll in the north part of the Driscoll Student Center, just west of the Penrose Library building.
Additional Library Services
For help with personal computers and equipment, visit the UTS Help Desk at 2100 South High St., located on the southeast corner of High and Evans streets.
Penrose Library Special Collections and Archives have moved to Aspen Hall North, 2nd floor. Please schedule a research appointment to request materials during this transitional time (firstname.lastname@example.org or 303.871.3428).
Returning Books – The book drops at the Penrose Library building closed on July 5. Books and other materials should be returned to the Access Desk at Penrose@Driscoll or to two new book drops located on the south side of Driscoll near the Lot E parking structure and the north side by Race St. Books and materials can be renewed online or by visiting Penrose@Driscoll.
Most library services, books, and materials have already moved out of the building. The move remains on schedule, and everything will be out by July 12, 2011. All Penrose Library phone numbers, mailing addresses, and email addresses will remain the same during the building project.
