The Library seems really cold to many students. The temperature is generally between 70 - 72 degrees, and the relative humidity is below 65%. If the Library did not maintain this basic environment there would be considerable damage to collections from bugs and mold.

An integrated Pest Management program treats all incoming gifts of books and manuscripts to the library by freeze extermination. Staff please use the Pest Extermination Freezer Information (PEFI) form and see the Guidelines for Freeze Extermination for more information.
