Two Renovated Campus Libraries Reopen

Library Environment

The USC Libraries recently welcomed Trojans back to two newly renovated campus libraries.

On October 18, the Library for International & Public Affairs (previously known as the VKC Library) reopened its doors to reveal an updated study environment, including new flooring and seat cushions, as well as compact shelving for books and other bound volumes. The Architecture & Fine Arts Library followed suit on November 29. That library, which had closed for a building-wide seismic retrofit, now features new carpeting and compact shelving.

The two libraries are open to USC students, faculty, and staff, as well as outside researchers. Please see the libraries' Fall 2021 page for current safety guidelines. Daily library hours are available here.
