Library Services After the Hale Library Fire

On May 22, 2018 there was a fire at Hale Library. While the fire was contained to the roof, Hale Library suffered significant smoke and water damage. The historic side of the library and the university's data center were especially hard hit. This has resulted in several service interruptions across the university. Personnel are working diligently to restore access and services.
