Offsite Storage Move Update

As we shared in August, to provide adequate social distancing and additional space for study and research, UNC Charlotte will be moving most of the periodicals collection and 70% of the print collection currently in Atkins Library to an offsite storage facility located 15 minutes from campus in Concord. The move begins on Monday, November 30th, 2020, and will continue through to the beginning of the 2021 Spring Semester. During the move, there will be some temporary noise, closure of study spaces, and disruption of collection access:

  • Signage will indicate areas of the Ground through the 3rd floor that are temporarily inaccessible and direct visitors to other open spaces in the library. 

  • Browsing will temporarily not be possible in areas where the move is taking place. 

  • Item locations listed in the catalog might not be accurate as materials are moved.

  • If you want to check out a book during this time, please request the item in the library catalog

  • The time it takes for the title to be retrieved and made available to you might be slightly longer than normal.

We appreciate the patience of library users as we go through this process.
