In order to improve access to the 4th and 5th floors of Areeda, we will be separating the operation of the two elevators shared by Areeda and Langdell. One of the elevators will serve Library traffic and the other will serve Areeda only. The Areeda car will be shut down next Wednesday, February 6, with an estimated return to service by March 4. During this period you may use the Griswold or Lewis elevator(s) and come across the link to Areeda. As always, the stairs will be open and available.
