How are over 90,000 library materials moved? Very carefully!

Starting on May 1st, 2019, professional library movers will begin the process of plotting and tagging the majority of Falk’s physical collection to prepare for 5 days of packing, relocating and unpacking books and journals in their new Thomas Blvd. home for the duration of the Scaife Hall construction project.

After the materials are packed and relocated, the empty book shelves (known as “stacks”) will be disassembled creating exciting possibilities for new library spaces. The 1st floor study and technology areas impacted by the construction of the new History of Medicine area, will be relocated to the newly opened space.
