HVAC Upgrade in the University Library this Summer

HVAC Closure

The University Library is getting an upgrade. Beginning Monday, May 22, crews will begin replacing the HVAC system which dates back to 1975 when the building first opened. The new system will be more energy efficient and improve air filtration.

During the upgrade library services will remain available through the Ask. Find. Use. desk on the 1st Floor. The 2nd Floor will be open for study space and computer use, though air conditioning will be limited. Access to the Lower Level and 3rd, 4th, and 5th floors will be restricted. The full list of inaccessible spaces is below.

StingerStudio Makerspace will be open on a limited basis and Special Collections & University Archives will be open to researchers by appointment. Both areas will have air conditioning.

Need to check-out library materials during this time?

Current students, faculty, and staff can use the Book Request process to have items delivered to the pick-up lockers at the library entrance. If you have questions about access to library materials, please email lib-circ@csus.edu or call (916) 278-6708.
