Beginning this month, ASU Library will be entering a lively phase of its reinvention, with many books, collections and materials in transit as Hayden Library prepares to undergo a major renovation, slated for 2018-2020.
While all libraries will be impacted, students, faculty and staff can expect to see the most disruptions at Hayden Library and Noble Library on the Tempe campus.
A significant portion of books and other materials moving out of Hayden Library will be available immediately at Noble Library.
For help locating or requesting materials:
- Ask A Librarian can help get you the materials you need.
- Library staff at the reference desk can give you information about your requested items.
- ASU librarians are happy to work with you to find the resources you need.
Plans to redesign Hayden Library include adding multiple points of access, with greater indoor-outdoor connection; dedicating space for community gatherings; breaking the library up thematically to better facilitate navigation and research discovery; featuring and enhancing special collections; and building a smaller, highly curated academic print collection that draws from the library's 4.5 million volumes.
