Mudd Library elevator out of service

Picture%20006Since December 16, the Mudd Library’s elevator has been out-of-service, as the 32-year old system is undergoing an upgrade. Scheduled to be unavailable until the end of January, patrons are advised that box retrieval may take longer than the usual 10 minutes and that patrons may be asked to limit the number of boxes recalled at any one time, depending on circumstances.Picture%20001 Pictured in this blog entry are (from top): the elevator in its present state as seen from the first floor; the old hydraulic controller after it was removed from the elevator closet; and the current means of gaining access to our stacks.Picture%20004
