Beginning next Monday, Sept. 17, the LSU Libraries’ Special Collections and the Hill Memorial Library building in which it is located will be open between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. , Monday through Friday. In addition, the Special Collections will be open Tuesday evenings till 8 p.m. On Saturdays, the library will be open 9 to 1 unless there is a home football game.
The shortened hours are due to the renovation work being done on Hill’s HVAC system, which is failing and no longer provides acceptable temperature and humidity level for the university’s archives and rare books.
“The shortened hours may need to continue for the remainder of this semester,” reports assistant dean of Libraries Elaine Smyth, “though we hope that the work will go smoothly and allow us to go back to our regular schedule soon.”
Updates will be posted on the Special Collections website at http://lib.lsu.edu/special/ or call 225-578-6544 during business hours for additional information.
