The long anticipated reroofing of the Laboratory of Anthropology Building commenced August 4th. The contract for the reroofing is for 60 working days. It is unknown for how long the LOA Library will be inaccessible. The LOA Library itself and the closed stacks of the LOA Library are swathed in plastic for the duration. The LOA Building and LOA Library will need to undergo extensive cleaning prior to being able to reopen as there is a thick layer of dust on everything.
I will post an updates as more information becomes available about when the LOA Library will be able to reopen.
The Librarian – Allison Colborne – is working offsite in a LOA Building office and also in the basement of the LOA Building for the duration of this construction project.
Allison remains available to assist you with your research. Feel free to contact her by calling 505-476-1266 or emailing her as usual at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
