We are pleased to announce that the Howard B. Waltz Music Library will be renovated Summer 2017! Our renovation will make more efficient use of space in staff areas, create more group study rooms, introduce a variety of seating options for our patrons, and update the overall look of the library. Collaborative group study spaces have been the most requested library feature students have identified in our surveys over the last few years. Our new student group study room has been a great success, and we’re excited to offer even more study options with this renovation.
In order to ensure that all students, faculty and staff have the time they need with Music Library materials this summer, we have expanded the circulation periods for undergraduate students. As of March 16, all Music Library scores and books will have a six-month check out period. This means all CU Boulder users, including undergraduates, graduate students, faculty and staff will be able to borrow these materials for six months. CDs and DVDs will retain their regular loan periods of seven days. If you need an item that is currently checked out, click “REQUEST IT!” in Chinook and you will receive an email when is it ready for pickup.
Faculty study space in Norlin:
If you are a faculty member looking for space to work this summer, faculty study carrels are available. The four study carrels are located on the second floor, southeast side of Norlin, near the Research Desk. They are available via key-card access. To get key-card access, email email@example.com or visit the Norlin Circulation desk with your BuffOne card.
Faculty lockers in Norlin:
Eleven lockers are available to be checked out by semester. These are located near the faculty study carrels. To request a locker, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Getting resources and materials during the renovation:
Construction will begin the day after commencement, May 13. Due to the construction, the library will be closed for the summer.
CU Boulder students, faculty and staff will be able to request Music Library materials for pick-up at Norlin Library Circulation Desk during the month of June. At this time, it is expected that the collection will be unavailable for July and early August.
All course reserve materials for College of Music summer courses will be housed at the Norlin Library Circulation Desk. Please submit your reserves requests to Melanie Cutietta by May 1, 2017.
We are currently in the process of moving our rare and archival materials to Special Collections and Archives as we will be losing much of our closed stacks space.
The Music Library’s CD collection will be housed in Norlin during the construction and will be paged at the Norlin circulation desk.
We look forward to sharing more information as it becomes available. Please check this post for updates as our renovation project progresses. Questions? Please email email@example.com
