30,000 books from Carney Library Now Relocated at UMass Law Library

Carney books on shelves at Law LibraryThe move of approximately 30,000 book volumes to the law library was completed today. All of the books from the Claire T. Carney Library are located on their lower level. Temporary signage has been placed on end panels to assist people in locating the books and law library journals. Better signage will be put in place this summer.

Sincere thanks to our colleagues at the law school for generously housing our books during the renovation. It allows us to provide greater access to our materials during construction and saved us many dollars in storage fees.

Also, 45 pallets of 20 boxes each were removed from campus and brought to off site storage. Many more boxes are staged on the upper floors for transfer soon. The core collection of books that will stay in the building are moving to the floors 1 and 2 soon. We are making progress every day.
