Library Update: Main Floor

The outside of AU Library is not the only place where work was done to improve the building this summer. Early this week, a month long comprehensive main floor reorganization project was completed.

We now have a spacious, bright work area on the library main floor with comfortable seating, cafe tables, and group tables.

Where is this located? Enter AU Library through the main doors and turn right; you will see our computer and print stations, copy machines, and the faculty publication display. The area adjacent is our new work / study/ lounge area. We have great green views of Founders Hall and the sunlight pouring into the library is simply amazing.

Print Journals:
Recent issues of print journal collection are located on the east side of the main floor (facing Founders).  Print journal stacks have been moved to the sixth floor.

Library 6th floor:
Student work areas remain on available on the 6th floor. Study areas are located on the north side of the building (facing College Avenue).

Ohio & Government Documents:
AU Library is a Federal Depository for government documents. Our Ohio and Government docs have been moved to the west side of the main floor, adjacent to the reference collection.

Welcome back to AU Library!
