    • Work is currently under way on Level 1 (to finish the Arts and Museums store), Level 5 (which will house part of the Fisher General Collection, the Curriculum and Realia collections), Level 7 (which will house part of the Fisher General collection) and Level 9 (which will house the relocated Archives and the East Asian and Folio collections). We will have a notice board in the Fisher foyer and signage through the building indicating the moves as they take place.
