Due to construction related to the CO6 Project and updates to library flooring, the B1 Level of Himmelfarb Library will be closed from June 25th through mid-August to patrons. Library staff will be ready to assist you by pulling any books you need from the stacks. The T1-4 group study rooms will be unavailable for use.


It is possible that there will be weekend closures of the entire Library as construction moves forward. Please check back to these pages for updates. We will make every effort to keep you updated and to assist you as you study and research throughout the summer.

On Thursday June 14th from 3-5:00 pm a representative from Student Technology Services will be in Himmelfarb Library to resolve your computer issues (laptops, wireless, etc.). Please stop by the Circulation Desk and ask for assistance!

Create your own group study space on the first floor of Himmelfarb Library!

Himmelfarb Library has recently acquired two moveable partitions with whiteboards for use by our patrons. These partitions can be configured around a study table or group of chairs to create a semi-private group study space on the first floor. Dry erase markers and erasers can be checked out at the Circulation Desk for use with the partitions/white boards.

Feel free to move the partitions around on the first floor to meet your group study needs!Portable study space
