Special Collections Reading Room in a New Location

Thu, 19 Jun 2014

The Mary Couts Burnett Library is currently undergoing a major renovation project with an expected completion date of August 2015.  Due to this project, the Special Collections reading room will be moving to a temporary location in the library, Room 219A (next door to the computer training room).  In addition, the Jim Wright Papers, the Amon G. Carter Papers and other collections will be moving offsite during renovations.  Requests for materials stored offsite will be required in advance of research visits so staff can retrieve boxes in a timely manner.  The department will be operational during renovations, but we strongly encourage researchers to contact us via email or phone prior to their visit.  Please visit the Special Collections homepage, the Library homepage, and the Library Facebook page for updates and announcements regarding construction.
