President John C. Kilgo Gets the Mail, undated

The Rubenstein Library is closed between July 1, 2015 and August 23, 2015 while staff offices and collections move. We cannot accommodate research visits or any use of our collections during this time. We will reopen August 24, 2015 in our newly renovated space.

Between July 1, 2015 and August 23, 2015, we do not have access to our collections. For that reason, we are unable to answer incoming research questions about our collections, and you will not get a response from us. Please get in touch after August 24 with your question, and we will be happy to help you then.
