The Getty Research Institute Library will be closed to all readers on Monday, May 28, in observance of Memorial Day.
On Sunday, May 20th, the Getty Center will perform its annual Emergency Power and Lighting Test, as required by Los Angeles City and Fire Department.
All Extended Readers will need to leave the site by 6:30 p.m.
This Saturday, from approximately 2:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., a book shelf cleaning project will take place on L2. A small crew will be using a vacuum with a Hepa filter, so there will be some noise associated with this work.
The Getty now offers eduroam (education roaming), a secure global roaming access service for the international research and education community. It allows students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain Internet connectivity across their own campus and when visiting other participating institutions.
Free access to the network can be obtained on any personal device by choosing the eduroam wireless network in your device’s wireless settings and logging in with your institution username and password. When prompted, accept a certificate, and you will have a secure connection to the Internet.
No Getty Wi-Fi password is necessary to access eduroam.
Where else can you use eduroam? Review the map or list of participating institutions.
-Sarah Sherman, Reference Librarian

Beginning January 22, the Research Library will be moving 225,000 books from GRI (STORAGE) to our off-site location (LIBRARY ANNEX). The move will take approximately three weeks, during which time the paging of books from both locations may be delayed by a day or two.
Once the move is complete, paging times will remain as is, with 10:00 a.m. being the cut-off time for paging materials from the Library Annex in order to receive them the same day.
As always, new material is shelved in the New Books area on L2 for two months and can also be searched in Primo by choosing the drop-down option called New Books: http://blogs.getty.edu/library/2016/09/
A moth treatment has been scheduled for this Friday, January 19, beginning at 9:00 p.m.

The library will reopen on Saturday, January 20, but boxes should not be placed back on the floor until after the floor is vacuumed on Sunday.
