The entry turnstiles and other building-access card readers in Cecil H. Green Library will be upgraded during Thanksgiving Recess, starting Monday, November 25, 2013.
The new cards will have the required proximity chip that will unlock the turnstiles. You will be able to hover your card over a sensor to unlock the turnstile or open a door. The reader is sensitive enough that you will likely be able to keep your card in your wallet or bag but still have it read by the sensor.
The relocation for the Manuscripts Technical Unit is quickly approaching.

Green Library to the rescue. You will find many books by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov and other fiction authors to check out or read online.
Green Library's Seminar Room (Room 301) is located on the third floor of the Bing Wing.
To get there you can take the elevator that's on the right just after you enter the Bing Wing (the same elevator that goes to the Bender Room on the fifth floor); Room 301 is the first room on the left once you reach the third floor. If you're feeling especially energetic and want to take the stairs, you can turn left upon entering the Bing Wing and then take stairwell 14 up to the third floor. When you arrive, turn right and you'll see Room 301.
