Dear RMU Community,
The RMU Library’s main floor will be undergoing a renovation during the period between the end of the Fall 2013 semester and the start of the Spring 2014 semester.
As a result:
Microfilms/microfiche, print periodicals/bound journals, and the reference books will be unavailable after November 24.
General collection books, Textbook Reserve Collection, faculty reserve books, and IRC books will be unavailable after December 14.
The Library itself will stay open to the public for as long as possible in keeping with our current schedule, which is available on our website at www.rmu.edu/library . However, the Library will close to the public earlier than expected if the environment becomes unsafe. Please check our RMU News Blog, Facebook page, and Twitter feed for updates.
Other dates to remember:
Often, interlibrary loan departments close in mid-December. Therefore, the RMU Library recommends:
ALL Interlibrary Loan (ILL) requests should be submitted by December 4.
All EZ Borrow requests should be submitted by December 11.
The Library cannot ensure delivery of EZ Borrow/ILL books and articles before the Winter Break because we are dependent upon other institutions sharing the materials.
Electronic resources will continue to be available throughout the renovation and Winter Break.
If you have any questions or comments, please contact Jackie Klentzin, Interim Head of Public Services at firstname.lastname@example.org
