Older Journals Move to Annex
About 50,000 journal volumes are moving to the Annex to make room for our construction project. These include most journals before 1993, and more recent journals for which we have stable online access. Journals may be requested via our online request form. These journals will remain in the Annex for the duration of the construction project - about two years. (July 2003)

Due to budget cutbacks, we must cancel journals for 2004. Our proposed lists of low-use and print journals with stable online access are available with a feedback form. (May 2003)
