Book Project Phase 2: Preparing to Receive Physical Collections (January 2021)

Crews were now turning their efforts toward installing shelving in Fraser’s closed stacks area (as well as in Schrader), in preparation for the much-anticipated books that would soon be moved from Milne. 

Planning and Construction secured two locations to store print books for the duration of the Library’s occupancy of Fraser Hall: the former periodicals room in Fraser Hall (Fraser 210) and a satellite location in Schrader Hall. Books would be requestable in the library catalog (GLOCAT) and library staff would retrieve materials and make them available for checkout at the Service Desk. 

In preparation, the former periodicals room was cleared of debris and the former pool in Schrader Hall was filled with geofoam blocks and secured with concrete, and shelving was installed in both locations.
