Signs of the Times — Our Doors Are Closed Until 2015


Yes, you read that correctly. The Taubman Health Sciences Library building closed last night at 11:45PM and will not re-open until 2015.


This is part of the planned renovation of our building.

But I need help with_____!!!!!

We can still help you. The entire staff of the library (THL) has moved out of the building, but we’re still on the medical campus.
** If you need help with research, expert searching, systematic reviews, or instruction, contact one of our informationists (aka liaison librarians or subject specialists).
** If you have problems with access to library resources or need to set up visiting scholar or proxy access, contact the library at 764-1210 or

What isn’t Taubman Library (THL) doing during this renovation period?

** No interlibrary loan, 7FAST, or GetThis pickups — these can be delivered to other locations on the medical campus.
** No public space for study or computer usage — please visit other libraries on campus.

What about Course Reserves?
** Instructors from the Medical School, College of Pharmacy, and Schools of Nursing, Dentistry, and Public Health can request Reserves items with this form.
** Students from these programs will find their Reserves materials at the Shapiro Library, room 2002.  This is a temporary location for the renovation period only.

Is the Library really moving back in 2015?

Yes, we are.  We will have a beautiful renovated space on the main floor of the building. And we are so excited, especially since we’ve spent the last 3 weeks moving stuff out. (I swear if I have to pack one more box, I will just pack me and be done with it.)

Drop box closed

But I have stuff to return — like interlibrary loans and books … and videos!!!!!
We know.  For now, you’ll have to use one of the drop boxes on north and main campuses.  A list of locations is available here.

We look forward to working with you in 2014.
