As the beginning of the chain reaction which will bring about the
transformation of Dwight Hall into a Center for Centers, LITS staff spent much
of the summer reorganizing spaces. Some of our library materials were affected.
Here’s what’s new:
Previously, science, psychology and education
periodicals were housed on levels 2 and 3 of the Miles-Smith wing of the library.
To make way for rearrangements of LITS space, the education and psychology
periodicals now live on level 2 1/2 of the Williston part of the library to
join the humanities and social science periodicals. Materials on microfilm have also been moved to level 2
All Science periodicals are now located on Level 2 of the Miles-Smith wing. In addition, volumes of science periodicals older than 1980 have, in most cases, been sent to the Five College Depository facility in South Amherst. The Depository provides additional space that allows us to keep older journals in the Five Colleges, and is a location which ensures secure, climate-controlled preservation of materials as well as use by people across the Five Colleges. Individual
articles can be requested from the Five College Depository. Complete instructions can be found on
the Five College Library Depository Request Forms page. If you need access to larger runs of older journals, or you have other needs not covered by the request forms, please contact your LITS liaison to discuss ways in which we can meet your needs.
If you need assistance using any of our resources, please contact the Research
and Instructional Support Team.

Around in LITS page for further building directory information, plus
maps and navigation videos.
