Join for an open house celebrating the return of the W. K. Kellogg Health Sciences Library in the Tupper Building.
Thursday, January 12
Renovations in the Tupper Building are coming to a close and the Kellogg Library is moving back! Are we happy? Oh yes!
The new Kellogg Library will open in January 2017. The new space will have 40 quiet study spaces for students, the print collection and all our diaspora staff back together.
There will be some disruption in service during the actual move, so please note:
- The print collection will be closed to prepare for the move beginning Tuesday, December 6, but Chapter House will remain open until December 18
- Reserve reading materials will be available in Chapter House until exams finish December 18
- All materials borrowed from the general collection after November 15 will be due back when the library reopens in January 2017
Faculty Note: Please submit your eReserve readings lists as early as possible. eReserve reading lists received before December 1 will be processed prior to closing the print collection. Reading lists received after December 1 requiring any print materials for scanning may not be complete until we re-open in January.
We look forward to seeing you in our new spaces in the new year. If you have any questions or concerns contact Kellogg.Library@dal.ca or (902)494-2458.
We are getting ready for the big move!
The Kellogg Library will be CLOSED starting Monday, December 21. We will reopen in our new spaces on January 4. Come see us at Chapter House and the CHEB!
Yes, you read that correctly! With a new learning commons opening, upcoming renovations, and the collection on the move, we want to make sure you know where everything will be located during the transition.
There will be a lot happening, so we’ve created a handy chart to keep you in the loop. When will the Kellogg be closing? When will the new Learning Commons space in the Collaborative Health Education Building (CHEB) be opening? Where will I go to borrow books? The Gantt chart poster is on display inside the main doors to the Kellogg Library for you to peruse whenever you like.
Of course, staff at the Kellogg are always ready and willing to answer any of your questions about the Kellogg moves, and our services. Don’t be shy! We want to make things as simple and straightforward as possible, so let us know what you think. And if you missed our Kellogg on the Move video, here it is again
You can also email questions to Carol Pottie (email@example.com).
Our summer interns Leah Boulos and Amy Sutherland have created a short video to explain what will be happening over the next few months in anticipation of the upcoming Kellogg Library move.
Take a few minutes to find out where specific resources will be housed and what services will be offered in the brand new Kellogg Learning Commons in the Collaborative Health Education Building and the Kellogg ‘swing space’ in Chapter House. You’ll also hear more about the timeline of when these transitions will be taking place.
As we prepare for the move, you might wonder why some of our shelves have a few bare spots. Fear not! Some materials are going off site and have been packed for the journey to their new temporary home. We will have them back on the shelves and accessible to you as soon as possible. Raymond Bennett, a student with the Kellogg Library since 2014, has been doing much of the heavy lifting on this project, and we are very grateful for all of his hard work.

The W.K. Kellogg Health Sciences Library will be on the move in just a few months.
Starting this coming December, after exams are over, here’s a timeline of what you can expect.
In December 2015, the Kellogg Library will close for the move to Chapter House. During this time, a small service desk will be available in the lobby or the Link.
In January 2016, a brand-new, permanent space, the Kellogg Library Learning Commons will open on the second floor of the Collaborative Health Education Building (CHEB). This exciting new space will be where you will have access to technology, IT assistance, Document Delivery, some quick reference services from library staff and a staffed service desk. The Kellogg Library Learning Commons will also offer many productive study spaces (individual, small group and bookable group study rooms). There will be seating for 300+.
Also in January 2016, the Kellogg Library will move into to Chapter House (5743 University Ave) while renovations take place on the main floor of the Tupper building. At Chapter House, you will have access to the collection and in-depth reference assistance from librarians. There will also be some study spaces where the print collection and some services will be located.
During this time, many reserve readings will be converted into electronic form so that they are accessible anywhere. For those materials that cannot be made accessible electronically a print reserve will most likely be held in the Kellogg Library Learning Commons until the Kellogg Library moves back to the Tupper Building.
In September 2016, the Kellogg Library moves back to the Tupper building, and will then be located on the first floor. The Kellogg will then have two distinct sites: The Kellogg Library (main floor Tupper Building) and the Kellogg Library Learning Commons (2nd floor CHEB).
Staff will be available to answer reference and research questions during all phases of the moves, at both locations.
