Expansion and Renovation Update
There is a good possibility the renovation of the Zach S. Henderson
Library will be completed in time that the full building, housing all
our collections, furnishings, and personnel, will be available to the
public by the beginning of fall classes in August of 2008. Meanwhile,
in February of 2008 Georgia Southern University must raze the building
in which the Federal and Georgia documents collection is now temporarily housed. Therefore the documents collection will have to be temporarily housed in other quarters between February and August of 2008.
We have begun moving the most recently published, most often-used, and
reference government documents materials to the publicly accessible
portion of Henderson Library’s third floor. Government documents on
microform will be placed in a storage area on the Library’s bottom
floor and items will be paged for patrons upon demand. In addition, the law collection (which had been housed in the temporary government documents building) will be located on the third floor of the Library. Service for these collections will be offered from the Information Services Desk on the third floor. More information on the relocation is at http://library.georgiasouthern.edu/documents/govdocsmove.html, and more information on the government document collection and services is available at http://library.georgiasouthern.edu/documents/
In order to make room for the government documents and the law collection, the Bound Periodicals published earlier than 2000 have been relocated to the ARC (Automated Retrieval Collection) for the time being. We look forward to having more space on open shelves following the expansion. Thank you for your patience during the final exciting months of the expansion and renovation! As always, our many e-journals are available in our Electronic Journals A-Z list, as well as in the library catalog.
