Engineering Library Set to Close

Apr 28 2014

As of Wednesday, May 21 at 5:00 p.m., the School’s Monell Engineering Library located on the fourth floor of Mudd will be closed permanently. Library services supporting students, faculty, and researchers will be relocated to the new Science & Engineering Libraries in the Northwest Corner Building. The Engineering Reserves collection will also be moved to this new location and available for circulation by May 27.

High use monographs have already been integrated into the collection in the Science & Engineering Libraries. Mathematics materials have been moved to the Mathematics Library, and the remaining monographs, print journals, and print reference materials will be moved to the Libraries’ offsite storage facility, and will be available for campus delivery to the requestor’s library of choice for pickup. Access to online ejournal and ebook collections will continue uninterrupted.

This move is part of the School’s overall renovation plans for Mudd, which include a an entirely new student commons and café on the fourth floor, a “Makerspace” in the Botwinick Lab, and dedicated space for the Institute for Data Sciences and Engineering.

The primary library liaison for the School is Ellie Ransom (ehr2125@columbia.edu), who is available for reference, instruction, consultations, and collection development issues. For questions concerning services or collections, the contact is Jane Winland (winland@columbia.edu), director of Science & Engineering Libraries.
