The main elevators (Elevators 4-6) and the Phase II freight elevator are blocked on the 2nd floor. If you wish to reach the 2nd floor by elevator, you must use Elevators 1-2 near the business office or Elevator 3 near the BHSD reference desk. Similarly, the central stairs (Stair 3) are blocked on the 2nd floor, so you must use the open stairway, Stair 2, or Stair 4 to reach the 2nd floor.
The contractors have erected barricades on the 2nd floor that block
access to the following call number areas:
CT 788 .S72 A3 – DK 908 .O43
HC 110 .E5 M33 – HF 5549.5 .M6 T67
PG 2900 .N685 – PR 445 .S3 v.23
The barricades extend all the way across the 2nd floor of Phase II, so there is no access via the central stairs (Stair 3), freight elevator, or elevators 4-6 to the mauka portion of the 2nd floor. Access to the mauka stacks and research carrels is only available via the mauka stairs (Stair 4). Patrons or staff members who are unable to navigate the stairs should seek assistance from Access Services staff to retrieve books from the mauka side of the 2nd floor.
Elevators 1, 2, and 3 may be used to access the bridge on the 2nd floor via the Ewa side of Phase I. You may want to use the 1st floor bridge to reach the Addition during this phase of construction.
