Beginning Monday, May 13, 2024, all three floors of the library’s westside, including access to the Main, Music and Federal Government Documents collections, will be closed the entire summer 2024. The library’s westside will undergo a significant HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system maintenance project to enhance the overall infrastructure of the library.

During this closure, all physical materials, including the Federal Government Documents Collection, MUST BE requested online for retrieval and pick up. Visit the FAQ at for directions on requesting materials from the closed section. Hold requests are available for pick up Monday through Friday. If you require physical access to a Federal Depository you may visit one of the following depositories locally:

Dallas Baptist University (0594A)
Dallas Public Library System (0594)
Southern Methodist University (0600)
University of North Texas (0608A)
University of Texas at Arlington (0607B)
University of Texas, Dallas (0594B)

If you require Government Document research assistance you may contact our Federal Depository Coordinator, Beth Callahan, at 817/257-7669 or The library’s eastside will remain open for our regular hours of operation throughout the project and services and resources are still available.
