  • The Adult Stay and Study Space
  • The Reading Room, housing the Leisure Reading Collection
  • The first floor Pattee stacks will be open, but access will be via elevator or stairs from the second floor

Access to collections and services will be maintained throughout the project.

  • Course reserve materials and assistance, as well as laptop computer loans, will be available at the Lending Services Desk in central Pattee Library, first floor.
  • Public-use computers are available throughout Pattee and Paterno. ITS computer labs are located nearby, in Burrowes and Sparks Buildings. See the links below for more information.
  • Use the "I Want It" button in The CAT for convenient retrieval of materials from the stacks or the Leisure Reading collection (next-day delivery to the service desk location of your choice).
