Davis Library Infrastrcuture Project GraphicBeginning in October 2017, the north side of the second floor will close for infrastructure work.

  • Library administrative personnel, including human resources and finance, will relocate to temporary offices elsewhere in the building. Please call or email administrators, or ask for directions at the service desk.
  • Library staff meeting rooms (214 A, B, and C) and the staff lounge will close.
  • Vending machines will be relocated to the south end of the J. Charles Morrow III Room on the first floor.
  • Restrooms in the northeast corner will close.

Floors 7 and 8 to close in November

In November 2017, infrastructure work will begin on floors seven and eight. The subject areas affected will fall in call number ranges PK-Z, which primarily includes drama, language and literature, and military science.

Staff will retrieve books from closed areas upon request, usually within two to three business days. UNC students, faculty, and staff can use the Library’s Carolina BLU delivery service to request books from Davis Library or any campus library. Non-affiliated users can use this form instead.
