Above ground, the Library has 3 floors on its east side and 7 floors on its west. The basement is unique in that only the eastern portion is managed by the University Libraries. The western section, the Advanced Technology Learning Center (ATLC) , is managed by IT Technology Support. Each of the two sides of the library are managed by their own elevators, catering to either the eastern or western half. There is no way to cross between sides above the Ground Floor. Additionally, there is no wheelchair access between sides in the basement. The map below demonstrates the structure of the library building.
