Archives and Special Collections is Moving to the Spring Valley Building

AU Archives and Special Collections will be closing on Friday December 9 to prepare for our move to the Spring Valley Building (4801 Massachusetts Avenue) in late January 2017. This includes public use of the Archives Reading Room. Over the course of the upcoming weeks, we will be packing books, making sure everything is properly labeled, and replacing damaged boxes to ensure that our collections survive the move intact. If you find yourselves on the third floor of the Library, you will be able to follow our progress as we will be working in the Archives Reading Room. We will continue to monitor email traffic though response times may be slow and some tasks such as digitization orders may have to wait until after we reopen.


Prepping audiovisual materials for the move


We will post regular updates as the move schedule is finalized as well photographs of cool finds and our new space. We hope that you will come and visit us in our new space.
