Maps Department Asbestos Abatement

After prepping the Maps area last week, the actual abatement efforts began earlier today. Despite best intentions (and methods) a citrus-like smell can be detected in some areas of the building. We expect abatement to continue for much of this week.

If the smell causes a problem for you, please consider using one of the other libraries on campus:

  1. Lichtenberger Engineering Library is directly across the street in the Seamans Center for Engineering.
  2. Pomerantz Business Library located in the Pappajohn Business Building has seating on two levels.
  3. Biological Sciences Library on Iowa Avenue provides quiet corners for individual studying.
  4. Hardin Library for the Health Sciences located on the health sciences campus offers a 24-hour study room.
