We will have an open house, Tea & Tour, for the new astronomy and physics graduate students on Wednesday, August 17, 2-4pm, in the Library. Find out what we have and where it is, refreshments are provided.
The Library will be close from 1-5pm that day.
The roof directly above the Physics-Astronomy Library is being repaired this week, July 25-29, 2011. We are monitoring the noise and possible fumes each day. Check the blog for any updates.
SciFinder is now web based, there is a one-time registration. Instructions are at http://software.chem.ucla.edu/scifind/SfsUCBweb.html. Once you have registered, you can go directly to http://scifinder.cas.org/. Note that even with registration, off-campus access still requires the library proxy server, unless you are using the SciFinder Mobile platform on your smartphone.
All of the UC Berkeley Libraries will be closed on Monday, July 4th.
As part of a transition in vendors for the library's copying and computer printing services, the Equitrac "copy cards" that have been in use for several years will be honored only until August 31, 2011. Any unused value on the Equitrac cards will be lost after that date. Refunds of unused value will not be available.
For anyone purchasing or adding value to an Equitrac card between now and August 31, we recommend getting only the value that can be reasonably used during that time.
Another option is to use a Cal 1 Card. Currently, this can be done on designated copiers and printers on the second floor of Doe Library, the entrance level of Moffitt Library, and the Bioscience & Natural Resources Library.
Starting September 1, the Cal 1 Card will be used for copying and printing throughout the libraries. For those not affiliated with UC Berkeley, we are developing a "guest card".
This change is part of a larger transition in which the UC San Francisco Documents, Media & Mail office, in partnership with the UC Library, is managing the copy centers in the Moffitt Library and the Bioscience & Natural Resources Library, and expanding the services available.
