A new open access journal in the earth and environmental sciences, Elementa: Science of the Anthropocene, was recently announced and will begin accepting submissions in April 2013.

It will be organized into six knowledge domains:
Fees charged to UCB faculty members, post-docs, and graduate students for publishing in this open access journal may be eligible for reimbursement through the Berkeley Research Impact Initiative (BRII).
If you are charged a library fee or fine, you can now pay it online through My OskiCat. You can find instructions in the Library FAQ on how to pay online. You can also still pay in person at the Privileges Desk in Doe Library.
The Earth Sciences and Maps Library will be open 9am-7pm Monday-Thursday and 9am-5pm Friday during the Spring semester.
Please remember that the Circulation Desk closes 15 minutes before the library does. This means no checkouts or returns after 6:45pm Monday-Thursday and after 4:45pm Fridays.
Holidays this semester include:
Monday, February 18: Closed
Friday, March 29: Closed
Hope to see you in the library soon!
