Some science libraries and services will be relocated on the UNC campus during the summer of 2011.
The moves are a response to the serious budget situation confronting the Library and the campus. They also reflect efforts to economize while still preserving priorities conveyed by faculty and students through surveys, focus groups, interviews, and discussions during the spring semester.
“We heard repeatedly about the need to acquire digital content, while also ensuring that print collections would be as available as possible for in-person browsing,” said University Librarian Sarah Michalak. “Also, that if we needed to move collections, we should do our best to keep science materials together.”
