Colorado Springs branch library closed

December 7, 2009

Thursday, December 10th was the final day of operation for the Colorado Springs branch library. The university budget no longer supports full staffing of the library or provides funding for its collection. We know that the closure is disappointing for many of you and we regret that we had to make this difficult decision.

After the 10th, the book and media collections will be moved to Dayton Memorial Library on the Lowell campus. Current newspapers and magazines will still be available in a reconfigured student study space. Test preparation guides (CLEP and Dantes) will be made available in the study space on an honor borrowing system. All library materials currently checked out still need to be returned—if you are returning materials after December 10th, please use the book return in the campus lobby. As always, journal articles are available directly through library databases or interlibrary loan. Books can be requested from libraries across Colorado using the Prospector system and media materials (videos and dvds) can be requested using the interlibrary loan form on the library web page. All materials can be picked up from a Campus Associate at the campus main desk.

While the student study space will not be staffed, research assistance will still be available from the DML reference desk toll-free, by e-mail, and 24/7 using AJCU chat reference. Click on Ask Us! on any library web page for more information:
