Join us in shaping the future of Alderman Library

Beginning in 2018, we will be embarking on a major renovation of Alderman Library. Read and subscribe to announcements, service information, and calls for public participation through the Library News blog.

Planning for the renovation is underway, and projects like the expansion of Ivy Stacks will enable smooth operations in the coming years. Read more about the project timeline. 

Want to express your hopes for the future of Alderman Library? In addition to public sessions in February, this survey will be posted until March 1: http://library.virginia.edu/survey. All questions are optional.


Questions? Concerns?

This site will serve as the central location for information about Alderman’s renovation and all related Library activity.

If you have questions, concerns, or ideas about the Alderman renovation, email University Librarian John Unsworth (Unsworth@virginia.edu) using the subject line “Alderman renovation”.  He will read and reply to all email with that subject line.
