Space Changes Impact Access to Offsite Collections

Due to space changes in the Pattee/Paterno Library and offsite annex storage, offsite collections may not be accessible, as they are in the process of being relocated. However, all onsite collections are available for research during this period. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we appreciate your patience during this time.
