Wilson Periodicals moved

The big Wilson moves are well underway.

The basement Periodicals room is nearly empty. The Periodicals have moved up to 3rd and 4th floors of Wilson.  Bound and Unbound are shelved together, title by title.

Here’s the new floorplan

When was this announced?

Other Wilson Library Updates
Periodicals and Dewey Decimal collections moving
The east section of the fourth floor of Wilson Library will re-open before Finals Week, providing additional study space. The area has been closed since late August, allowing staff to process the relocation of collections classified with the Dewey Decimal system. Some of these Dewey materials will be re-classified into our Library of Congress system and remain in Wilson, while others will be moved to off-site storage.

The bound and current periodicals, in the basement of Wilson Library, will be relocated to the third (N-J) and fourth A-M) floors.

Here are a few photos to show the changes; visit Wilson and explore if you plan to use the collections here in the coming months. (I had to do this myself!)
