Cooper Library - Limited Access to Collections
A water leak during the recent cold spell has forced the closure of the 1st and 3rd Floors of Cooper Library - even after the rest of the facility will reopen. Political Science-specific materials (Call Numbers beginning with "J" and "K") are not accessible along with any other materials on the 1st Floor. Patrons needing access to these items will have their requests filled through InterLibrary Loan. The most current information is available on the Libraries homepage.
