The GSU Law Library, along with the rest of the College of Law, is moving to a new building this month. Anticipation is reaching a fever pitch for our new space, which will include two floors, a formal reading room, more study rooms, a cafe, an outdoor terrace, and lots and lots of windows. (For progress updates, watch the GSU Law Construction page on Facebook.)
In addition to the anticipation, there are also a lot of logistical details involved in the process. All library users will be affected by these details, so we wanted to let you know what to expect.
- We will be closed the weekend of June 19-21. The College of Law will be moved over the weekend, as well as all Law Library offices. Both the College of Law and the Law Library will close at noon on Friday, June 19 to be ready for this process. Except for classrooms, these spaces will no longer be accessible.
- The College of Law will reopen at 8:30 a.m. and the Law Library will reopen at 9 a.m. on Monday, June 22 at our new location, 85 Park Place NE. Access to the new building will be temporarily limited to current GSU Law students, GSU Law faculty, and GSU Law staff through Sunday, June 28. For information about accessing the Law Library after that date, we recommend you check our website or call us.
- The Law Library collections and other physical resources will be moved after the rest of the College of Law. We anticipate that students will be able to access course Reserves and Study Aids in the new library starting around midday on Monday, June 22. Our Reference collection will also be moved first; the rest of the collections will be moved as quickly as possible.
- We will have a new physical address (85 Park Place NE) but our phone numbers, P.O. Box number, and email addresses will remain the same. We will update our website as soon as possible after the move to reflect the new information, but be careful to confirm these details in the early weeks following the move.
