Finding Your Way Around the Pfau Library Building: Home

Help for successfully navigating the PL building.

Clarification

PFAU LIBRARY BUILDING (PL) IS NOT EQUAL TO JOHN M. PFAU LIBRARY (PFAU LIBRARY).

How can this be?  Although the building is named for the library, the library does not occupy all of it.

More Than the Library

The library building houses all of the following and more:

Information Technology Services

  • Academic Technology & Innovation
  • Administrative Computing & Business Intelligence
  • Creative Media Services
  • Information Security and Emerging Technology
  • Technology Operations & Customer Support

Self-instructional computer labs

Technology Support Center

Coyote OneCard Office

Classrooms

The John M. Pfau Library

  • Library Multimedia Center
  • Special Collections
  • Water Resources Institutue

Mentoring and Honors Program

Online & Distributed Learning

Telecommunications and Network Services

HINT

Many, many folks end up at the library without enough information to identify what location they are trying to find and the reference librarians have to guess where to send them!

Get as much detail as you can if someone tells you, "It's in the library."  What is the name and room number of your destination?  Is there a particular person you need to see?  If so, what is their name?

Most, But Not All of This Building is the John M. Pfau Library
