Renovation of the third floor of King Library has begun. Offices around the perimeter of the floor were moved and the demolition of walls has been completed. In Special Collections we started physically preparing for the renovation last July. We began shifting most of our books and manuscript boxes, took down some shelving, and did some reorganizing. In mid-December we wrapped the book ranges in plastic. When the renovation of the floor is finished the University Archives will move into our new shared facility. Special Collections and Archives will occupy the whole north end of the third floor. I thought that you might like to see what things look like in Special Collections as the New Year begins.
