University Librarian Virginia Steel Announces Temporarily Closure of the Ahmanson-Murphy Reading Room

  • June 21, 2021

On June 21, 2021, Virginia Steel, UCLA's university librarian, shared important information via a BruinPost about the temporarily closure of the Ahmanson-Murphy Reading Room at the UCLA Library Special Collections. Beginning on July 1, the Ahmanson-Murphy Reading Room must temporarily vacate and close to accommodate critical infrastructure work will clear the way for the installation of a new energy efficient humidity control system on the A Level of the Young Research Library. This work is expected to be completed by the start of the fall quarter. 

Researchers who may need immediate access to physical materials before July 1 should email to make a reservation. Reservations are available on a first-come first-served basis for current UCLA students, faculty, and staff with valid BruinCards.
