  • The floors will not be closed completely, but the areas under repair will be closed off from the rest of the library.
  • The staircase in the middle of the building might be out of use for short periods of time, but at least one elevator will be available at all times.
  • The stacks, reading spaces and group study rooms will be temporarily out of use as the project advances, depending on which floor and area the repair work is carried out at any given time.
  • The stacks will be protected with coverings, which means they cannot be accessed during the repairs.
