Flood Filled Friday!

Just when we all thought the worst of the flooding was over, we here at the Fred Parks Law Library found a wet surprise this morning!  Apparently excess water from the 6th floor terrace leaked through to the fifth floor tile and right onto a small segment of our 5th floor collection.

Not to worry though! Our trusty staff and librarians went to work right away to help salvage the materials, clean up the mess, and protect the area from further damage. Our maintenance department also chipped in to help eliminate the leakage and protect our materials.

The only materials that were directly affected by the leakage include Spanish-language legal periodicals. In the meantime rows 26-35 on the 5th floor (incorporating call numbers KFT 1294-KKA 39) of the south side of the library will be temporarily covered to protect the materials in those sections.  This section ranges from the end of the Texas materials through German Law.
