Reno-relocation

9 August 2018 - 3:00pm by Kelly Perry

If you haven't stopped by the library recently you may notice that things are a bit...  different.  We have optimized the spaces that will not be part of the renovation project for your comfort and convenience. 

What does that mean for you?  Can you still access the all-important things the library offers, such as study materials, computers...  the bathrooms?  Of course you can! 

Map of the library during renovations

Here we have a map of the layout of the library during the renovations (click this link to view the map as a .PDF).  We'll soon have additional signage and other guides to help you find your way during these first few months of the construction.  Of course, please feel free to ask any staff member to help you at any time.

We are grateful for your patience during this time, and look forward to the exciting collaborations this renovation will bring!

We will be moving furniture on Friday the 3rd, Monday the 6th, and Tuesday the 7th from 7:30am to 3pm.  The movers will be transferring furniture from all parts of the library as we wrap up our preparations for renovation.

Expect disruptions, possible room closures, and lots of activity during these times.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Renovation prep begins Monday, July 30th

26 July 2018 - 10:36am by Kelly Perry

Beginning Monday, July 30, you will notice an increase in noise and disruption at the Cushing/Whitney Medical library as work begins to prepare the space for the renovation project.

On Monday, the Information Desk and staff will be relocated to the Circulation Desk area at the front of the library.

Also on Monday, movers will be on site to relocate and remove furniture in advance of construction.  They will be moving tables and other furniture throughout all floors of the library.  These moves will occur over the course of the day and there will be noise associated with this work, especially between the Information Room and Morse Reading Room.  This work will require the temporary removal and/or relocation of computer workstations.

If you require quiet study space, please consider another location during this time.

Noise Alert for Friday, July 13th and Saturday, July 14th

13 July 2018 - 12:11pm by Kelly Perry

Basement stacks, where drilling will take place.

Workers will be in the library this afternoon and tomorrow to install additional electrical service in preparation for the renovation project.  This work will take place near the four pillars on the E-level next to the book stacks.  This work may be noisy and library users may want to seek other space in the library during this time.

The work is slated to take place today (Friday, 7/13) from 4pm until approximately 10pm and tomorrow (Saturday, 7/14) from 7am to 3pm.  We apologize for this necessary inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we begin the renovation project.

Please contact Judy Spak (judy.spak@yale.edu) with any questions.

The Betsey Cushing Study Rooms

3 July 2018 - 8:29am by Kelly Perry

As the countdown towards renovations ticks down, you unfortunately will no longer be able to reserve a study room in the basement of the library.  Because we know these study rooms will have to be closed in the very near future, we decided it was best to end the capability to reserve the rooms online now, since future reservations may end up having to be cancelled.

The good news is that the rooms are still available on a first come, first served basis, until such time where the area is closed off to all patrons because of renovations.

We apologize for the inconvenience.  While we await the day the renovations are complete, and more glorious study space opens up, please note the availability and locales of other study spaces around campus by visiting this link here.

Renovation Update!

9 February 2018 - 3:04pm by Kelly Perry

We are excited to announce that plans for the renovation are moving forward! The architects are preparing the final enhanced schematic design and construction drawings with an end of March timeline. As of now, construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in mid-July.

Here are some recent preliminary drawings of the proposed Team-Based Learning classroom and the relocated Information Commons. Please note: the colors are for definition of spaces, not the actual colors for the final designs.
