DeGolyer Library / SMU Archives Closed for Renovation

DeGolyer Library and the SMU Archives will be closed to the general public starting June 1, 2015, as part of the renovation in Fondren Library. Over the next 6-12 months, we’ll be moving all our collections, work spaces, offices, and reading room. We’ll attempt to keep up with reference queries and photo orders as best we can during the renovation, but there will be times when some of our materials will be completely inaccessible or stored off site.  Our various digital collections, of course, will remain accessible: see

We appreciate everyone’s patience and look forward to serving researchers in renovated facilities in 2016! For more information about DeGolyer Library and the progress of the renovation itself, bookmark our web page and the Fondren Renovation blog:
