Finding Your Way Around the Pfau Library Building: Introduction

The PL building is the most complicated one on campus--don't get lost! #classrooms #lost #PL

 

Decorative header.

EXPLANATION

PFAU LIBRARY BUILDING (PL) IS NOT EQUAL TO THE 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 lost at the library without enough information to identify where they need to go.  Get as much detail as you can if someone tells you, "It's in the library."  What PL room number do you need?  Is there a name associated with the room number, for example, Coyote Radio & Advertising?  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
