Marquand Library has moved its public services to two spaces on the C Floor of Firestone as of 3-21 until 2024-25. Straight past the main entrance to Special Collections (on right) is the Scribner Atrium, and to the left is the West Atrium. The former is meant for all books on hold, including Course Reserves, and those uniquely owned by Columbia  (i.e. Avery Library) and the Harvard Fine Arts Library; the latter is meant for those with assigned study shelves. All books must be requested in advance. Rare books must be requested via the library catalog and are serviced out of Special Collections; larger vols. (i.e. folios, elephants folios) are off-site. Email with further questions.
