Welcome to the Wallace Center! This summer was one of excitement, noise and dust as the Wallace Center spent several weeks under construction. The first floor of the Wallace Center has been transformed to better support the academic success and scholarship of our students and faculty. Complementing services already offered by the Wallace Center’s RIT Libraries, Faculty Development and RIT Production, the new design features the addition of the Writing Commons and the RIT American Sign Language & Deaf Studies Community Center that were previously located in the SAU.
Urgent repair work is underway in the Wallace Center entrance lobby area. As work progresses, the following impacts and closures are anticipated:
Tuesday August 20 until Monday August 26, 2013 - The A-level circulation adjacent to Room A-400 will be closed. Adjacent rooms may be entered either from the north or south but through circulation will be closed during this period.
Faculty / Staff campus delivery:
No time to come to the library to pick up your items? Request delivery. This service includes RIT owned items, ConnectNY, and Interlibrary Loan materials.

The opening for the exhibit Bands on the Bricks: A Retrospective, will be held on May 2nd from 4-8 pm and will include music, refreshments, and a look at some well-known musicians and one-hit wonders you may have heard of or seen perform. Our DJ will be spinnin’ the vinyl hits of these entertainers.
