Scanner Room Renovation & Refurbishment August 2011

The Avery Library scanner room (room 220B) will be closed from the beginning of August through late August (about Aug. 23) for the installation of new flooring–with “green” tiling–and new work stations.

Three scanners will be available for use during this period.  Two scanners  will be re-located across the 200-level main reading room, near from the Reference Desk.  The scanner on the 100-level, by the reading tables, will also continue to be in operation.

Please accept our apologies for this temporary inconvenience while we improve the Library’s space.

Avery Library Drawing & Archives–Woodlawn Cemetery


Woodlawn Cemetery is now a National Historic Landmark! On June 30, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar announced that Woodlawn was one of 14 new national historic landmarks!


Cited for its landscape and architectural design, Woodlawn’s application was strengthened by the archival documentation of its monuments, which are now housed in Avery’s Drawings and Archives Woodlawn Cemetery Collection.  See the complete Woodlawn press release.
