The Claire T. Carney Library Archives and Special Collections, currently located on the fourth floor of the library, will be closed for all but emergency requests from October 16 through mid-November.
During this period, the collections and staff will be moving into the newly-renovated Claire T. Carney Library Archives and Special Collections and Ferreira-Mendes Portuguese-American Archives facility on the mezzanine and lower levels of the library.
A date has not yet been set for the grand opening, but we anticipate that the Archives will be open to the public in mid-November.
