As of Jan 22, the 2nd floor on Fondren East is closed, but this floor will open by Jan 29. The next floor to close will be Fondren East 3rd floor which has study spaces and books with call numbers P-PT and the 800s. Fondren East 3 will be closed from Feb 4 to March 30. If you need books from the 3rd floor, we can get them for you. Ask at the desk for help or call 214-768-2329 to learn all of the options.
We have added a new “Request Pick Up or Scan” link in the library catalog to request that a book be pulled and held for you at the desk. This new service works for most Fondren, Hamon Arts Library or Bridwell Library books.
Some study space in Fondren West first floor is closed, but the construction there is for a good cause: A new collaborative computing space and a fancy Starbucks. The convenient access to caffeine should be worth this small sacrifice. The space will be complete this summer and will take Starbucks gift cards. 🙂
