Folios and Periodicals Restricted Access

A shelf collapse in the Architecture Library’s larger book stacks (the folio area) revealed instability issues with the shelves in both the folio and periodical stacks areas. The library facilities staff has recommended that we close these areas to patrons for safety reasons, while they evaluate the appropriate solutions.


To help with immediate access to these materials, the Library stacks coordinator will work with the Architecture Library staff to retrieve needed books from the closed shelves, with a 24-hour turn around time, Monday through Friday. This service will start on Thursday June 5, 2014.


As you conduct your book searches in the Library's Catalogs, you may come across the following notice:


UMCP Architecture Library Folio, Status currently unavailable  OR

UMCP Architecture Library Periodical Stacks, Status currently unavailable

Don’t despair, there is a solution.


Until our online request form is up, please do the following:
