Government Documents Relocation

Beginning January 4, the M.D. Anderson Library will start moving the TX Documents and US Documents to their new home in the compact shelving system. They will be housed in the ranges located adjacent to the Shelving Dept., on the north side of the basement. We anticipate the complete move to take a few weeks. Appropriate signage for the new sections is forthcoming. All materials will be fully accessible during the move process.
