1. ANNOUNCEMENTS
            A. AIR CONDITIONING PROJECT
Thanks to a bond approved by State of Maine voters, Fogler Library will have air conditioning in a portion of the building by summer. Work on the ventilation systems began on December 20th and will continue through the late spring. To keep distractions to a minimum, we will schedule the most disruptive work when Fogler is closed and/or during breaks. 
Signage will be posted throughout the duration of the project to assist you in locating areas that are the most conducive to research and study. For more information, contact Karen Stewart at <karen.stewart@umit.maine.edu> or call 581-1655.
