Alvin S. Okeson Library

The library's ceiling and lighting are being replaced over the summer.  Our physical collection and study areas are closed, but we can obtain materials from other libraries and provide research assistance.  Our collections of ebooks and journals remain available.  A temporary computer lab is available for students in FSM 107 from 9 am to 5 pm.  We anticipate returning to normal operations in mid-August.
