For a guide to which library houses the majority of materials in a given call number range, consult the University of Chicago Library Call Number Guide.
This spring, the University will be installing occupancy sensors to control lighting in bookstacks aisles as part of its efforts to reduce energy costs and increase sustainability across the campus. For more information, see the Library news post about the project.
Work on this project is substantially complete. Work will continue over the next few weeks, but is not anticipated to cause any aisles to be inaccessible for more than a few minutes at a time.
If you have any feedback about the new occupancy sensors, please send it to David W. Bottorff, Head of Stacks.
