Manuscript Reading Room to Relocate During Renovation
It is expected that the Manuscript Reading Room will operate in LM G-15 at least until December 17, and some changes in service are anticipated while operations are in temporary quarters. Normal operating hours, 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, Mondays through Saturdays (except for Federal holidays), will be maintained. As developments unfold, additional information will be posted here.
Notices as of October 28, 2013:
While efforts will be made to deliver requests for collections materials in a timely manner, readers should expect delivery delays since stack areas are located at a further remove from the G-15 facility.
The G-15 facility has limited electrical outlets and readers will not be able to use outlets for personal computers or other electrical devices at reader tables. It is expected that a "charging station" will be available for readers to re-charge their electrical devices, but please note that the station will be not be adjacent to reader tables.
There will be no Wi-Fi connection available in G-15.
