Faculty Studies in Burling Library

Eight small studies on the basement level of Burling Library are available to Grinnell College faculty for assignment on a one-semester, two-semester, or summer basis. Needs for which these studies are an appropriate form of faculty support include substantial research projects that require heavy use of the library's collections or a place, free from interruption, in which to write. The studies are not intended to serve as supplementary faculty offices.

Pardon Our Dust

This summer, as a result of patron feedback and ever-growing audiences at library events, Burling Library will be undergoing a partial renovation. Most of the work will be done in the Burling Lounge area, where events are usually held. Two rows of periodical shelving are being removed in order to increase the Lounge area by 50%, making room for larger audiences during events. This move has been possible due to the fact that more and more of our journal subscriptions are shifting to an online-only format.
