The Smith College Libraries are working on a large re-shelving project at the Annex facility in Hatfield, MA. Re-shelving the Smith collection is the final step of the Neilson Library building project and will enable the Libraries to use the Annex space allotted to Smith for storing books and journals in the most effective way. The project is underway and is expected to be completed in September 2023.
In response to faculty concerns, the materials stored at the Annex will now be available, with some delays, throughout the duration of the project. Library staff have made significant enhancements in redesigning software and working with the vendors and Five College Inc. to make this possible.

Newly re-sized trays. This is what we want to see: items in the appropriate sized tray, same sized trays on a given shelf, and shelves being filled along the length of the aisle.
