The Estelle and Melvin Gelman Library will remain open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We continuously try to balance the need to make sure that there is high quality study space available and operational efficiency.
Looking for a quiet place to study? Visit Gelman Library’s Graduate Student Reading Room on the 5th floor. We painted, re-carpeted, and brought in comfortable seating -- all in response to your feedback. We've also installed lockers to provide graduate students a safe place to store small items. You’ll need to tap your GWorld card to enter: the room is open to graduate students only.
With construction of the National Churchill Library and Center scheduled to begin sometime this academic year, 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.
