Renovations continue at Ottenheimer Library to create a Learning Commons on the first floor. To accommodate this renovation, the library will be closed during the week of Thanksgiving (November 20-27). The lobby will be open 8:00 am to 5:00 pm on November 22-24 for library users to pick up holds and interlibrary loan items from a location in the south lobby. All digital collections will be available and reference assistance will be available via phone, chat, e-mail and text.
Once completed in January, the learning commons will be the new home of the University Writing Center, Math Assistance Center, Communication Skills Center, and Global Languages Center, as well as general tutoring at the university. Whether students need to conduct research with physical or digital collections, write a paper, create and practice a presentation, or increase their knowledge and skill in math or other subjects, the Ottenheimer Library Learning Commons will provide a space where students can access the technology and expert assistance they need to succeed.
