Photos: Tower Disassembled; Working on Access to Gale

We got an interesting delivery at the library today. Billy Hughes of the UM Physical Plant snapped these photos of a crew taking down the old water tower behind Main Hall. The university will be supplying Main with water from a newer tower on campus and this one, which dates back some years, had to be taken apart piece by piece due to its proximity to Main.

Carmichael Library will keep these photos in University Archives; another piece of school history recorded here at your campus library.

In other news, we're working on getting the access to some of our Gale databases from off-campus re-established. Stay tuned to this blog for news on when things are up and running once again. As I write, all other databases are working both on and away from campus.
