In preparation for eventual renovations in Alderman Library, construction of the Ivy Stacks addition, an expansion of our off-site storage facility, began in summer 2017. The facility will double our current capacity, provide improved preservation conditions, and give the Library options for storage while spaces in the main Library are under construction in the future.
During Ivy Stacks construction, Library staff has access to the facility for retrieval only one day a week. On Tuesdays, all Ivy Stacks requests will be retrieved.
This means that any items that are requested from Ivy Stacks before noon on Monday should be delivered within 48 hours. Requests received after this time are likely to be delayed until the following week, but please know we’ll do everything in our power to retrieve materials as quickly as possible.
The project is scheduled for completion in spring 2018. Visit http://news.library.virginia.edu/category/service-change/ for the most recent service updates.
