Continued Library Services Following Public Health Library Closure

April 6th 2015

The Public Health Library (PHL) will close permanently at the end of the day on May 8, 2015.

Below is a brief overview of what to expect.

Books and bound journals

Collections are currently being physically transferred to the ALF from PHL. All new acquisitions for the Public Health Library will be sent directly to ALF. New titles that are heavily used will be transferred to the Wells Library as they become identified.


Print reserves, delivery, reference services, etc. will continue until the end of the spring semester. Beginning the summer of 2015, print reserves for the current academic semester will be moved to the Wells Library. After the Public Health Library closes, there will be a library services office in the School of Public Health for the librarian and graduate student staff.

In Mid-April Public Health will be removed as a delivery option in IUCAT. Faculty and graduate students with secure mailboxes are being encouraged to sign up for office delivery service.  Anyone can select a pick up location of their choice using IUCAT.

For additional services such as Reference and Instructional support, contact Jian Liu, Head of the Science Libraries.
