As the Provost recently announced, the University Libraries are included in The Heart of the Campus project to transform student services and library spaces. The third floor of the Silverman Library in Capen Hall is the focus for the Libraries, where a new, lively, state-of-the-art learning, collaboration, classroom, media and study facility will be created. The third floor closes December 16, 2014, until its grand opening in late 2015. This message offers information about the short- and long-term impacts of the project on Libraries’ services, collections, programs and people. Please contact me if you have any questions or need additional information for your teaching or research.
SILVERMAN (CAPEN) CHANGES AND CLOSURES:
The third floor of the Silverman Library in Capen closes December 16, 2014 through the completion of the project in late 2015. In December and January, collections and study spaces currently on the third floor move to Lockwood, and the third floor Cybrary moves to the second floor of Capen. The Print Services Center, Cybrary, Multimedia Collections and Reserve remain on the first floor in their current locations. Please use Delivery+ to request library materials during the move.
SCIENCE & ENGINEERING INFORMATION CENTER AND MAP COLLECTION MOVE TO LOCKWOOD:
The Science and Engineering Information Center – including librarians, microforms, periodicals and the reference collection – and the Map Collection move to Lockwood Library in January of 2015. The Center will be located on the first floor of Lockwood and the Map Collection will be in the basement. Science & Engineering librarians will continue to offer all services during the transition. Please contact your subject librarian if you have questions and use Delivery+ to request materials. See the Science & Engineering Information Center web site for more information.
LOCKWOOD LIBRARY COLLECTIONS IN NEW LOCATIONS:
The East Asian Collection, Juvenile Collection and Curriculum Collection are now available on the third floor of Lockwood. Please see the Libraries’ Hours & Floor Plans for locations and use Delivery+ to request materials.
STUDY SPACES FOR STUDENTS:
Lockwood Library is the 24/7 library location for 2015, beginning January 26, 2015. The third floor will feature a new silent study space. Students will also be alerted to other study spaces in the UB Libraries.
Thank you for your patience as the Libraries and campus make these exciting changes. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any additional information or have any questions or comments, and be assured that we will do our best to ensure uninterrupted service to you during these transitions.

I receive a posting every Friday and it keeps me in touch with what really matters.
Nurses – do you know about the Virginia Henderson Global Nursing e-Repository?
This open-access digital academic and clinical scholarship service is solely dedicated to sharing works created by nurses. The repository offers full text search retrieval, and includes dissertations, theses, study reports, conference papers, committee reports, faculty-created learning objects, presentation slides, conference papers, and pre- and post-print journal articles, as well as more than 38,000 study and conference abstracts.
Nurses – you are invited to submit research-related or evidence-based practice work authored by a single nurse, multiple nurses, or a collaborative group that includes a nurse. There is no fee to submit, and authors retain copyright to their materials, maintaining control of their work via a self-archiving mechanism.
The Health Sciences Library also provides a link to the Henderson Repository in our list of Biomedical Databases
