Noise on Hardin’s 1st Floor

Beginning Tuesday, November 24, books and journals currently located on Hardin’s first floor will be moved out of the Library to the Library Annex.  Shelving will also be removed. This is the first stage of a long-term project which will result in offices for the University’s Institutional Review Board being built on the first floor.  Additionally, volumes from the current Psychology Library will be moved into the remaining first floor stacks.

We apologize for the noise which this project will create over the next several months, and recommend using other areas of the Library for study.  The fourth floor is generally the quietest area of the Library.

Questions or comments can be sent to or to Janna Lawrence, Hardin Library Assistant Director, at
