NCLC RenderingWith construction of the National Churchill Library and Center scheduled to begin in the Fall, we are making some changes before the fall semester begins to prepare. Many of the public computers currently located 1st floor are being moved to the 3rd floor. To preserve the total number of seats available in the building, this move will cause some other changes on the 3rd floor. All bound journals will be integrated into the book stacks on other floors and the microfilm and microfiche collections are being partially moved to off-site storage, with the rest moving to the previous location of the bound journals.

Bound journals will be easier than ever to find one this move is complete! However, for the month of August you will find bound journals located on public storage shelves on the 4th, 5th, and 6th floors as indicated below. These shelves are located along the wall immediately to the right when entering the stacks. If you need help locating a bound journal, please ask for assistance at any service desk on the entrance floor.
