Russell Library Moving Alert Bulletin

If all goes according to plan, the Russell Library will begin moving its collections to the Special Collections Building on Hull Street on Tuesday, September 6, 2011. The Russell Library will remain open for research at its current location through September 2, 2011.

Until September 6, 2011, visitors to the Russell Library should use the main entrance of the Main Library building and alert the representatives at the security desk that they need to have access to the Russell Library. Once the move begins on September 6, the Russell Library will close for all research until early November.

After the move concludes, the Russell will reopen for research in the new Special Collections Building located at 300 Hull St. (behind the Holiday Inn on Broad St.)

Research access during this transitional time (late fall) will be limited. To use Russell Library collections during this period, researchers should make advance arrangements for access by contacting Jill Severn at

The Special Collections Libraries Building will reopen to the public with normal service in January 2012.
