Hunt Library Water Shutdown

The water for Hunt Library will be shut down on Monday, 9/25, at 4:30PM until Tuesday, 9/26, at approximately 8:00AM.  This shutdown is required in order to replace one of the main valves in the CFA Lawn. All water in the building will be affected during this shutdown.

Please refrain from using any restrooms in the facility during this time. Restrooms are available for use in Baker Hall and the College of Fine Arts. 

New Library Services Platform

Carnegie Mellon University is the thousandth institution to select the Ex Libris Alma® cloud-based library services platform. Alma will be replacing the SirsiDynix Symphony® integrated library system.

Alma was selected primarily for its ease of use, its compatibility with other systems, and the flexibility of its analytics and reporting options. Through its user-friendly interface and integration with the university’s financial systems, Alma will greatly improve workflow efficiencies in account creation, billing, and other areas.
