The Libraries are exploring options to expand space for special collections on Olin Library Level B (where paper math books and journals are kept). Planning is in the early stages. As a first step, oversized books and A and Z call numbers have been moved from Olin Level B to West Campus. You will be able to REQUEST those items through the catalog for delivery when you need them. (More info at Collection Projects.)
Call numbers (QA etc.) will be using fewer shelves on Level B in future; this is possible in part because of purchased online journal backfiles which will allow us to keep fewer paper volumes with minimal inconvenience. I expect to be reviewing lists of very-low-use, readily-available titles throughout the coming semester; for more about that work see Collection Management Guidelines and Procedures, December 2013. I'm told that lists of books being withdrawn will be posted on libguides.wustl.edu/collections for a short time in case any faculty want to claim them before they are sent to book vendors or to disposal. The first list will be posted Feb. 24 for 1 week. Please keep Ruth Lewis informed about any questions or concerns. Thank you.
