Services and Changes in the Library
The shifting project on the 8 th floor is not yet completed. The shifting was stopped from May to August because of shortage of
student help in summer.The Library is aware of the problems with insufficient shelving space and with the overflow trucks being in
disorder. We have been promised that the situation will be improved starting in late September when more student help is hired and trained for the project.
