Thanks to a generous gift from two Cal parents, the popular 24 hour Study Hall that has become traditional in the Gardner (Doe) Stacks and Moffitt Library during final exams will return this academic year. Budget cuts had made it necessary to discontinue the 24 hour Study Hall, but this wonderful donation from Richard and Lisa Steiny will allow the Library to provide this service once again. Here is an article from the Daily Cal about this (with a quote from a Public Health student!)
Fall finals covers Thursday, December 10 at 8 am through Saturday, December 19 at 5 pm. During this period, the Gardner (Main) Stacks and Moffitt Library will be open 24 hours for students to study; the Moffitt Microcomputer Lab and FSM Cafe will also be open during those hours.
Current information on hours of operation (including Reference Desk hours) for all the UCB libraries is available here.

The PubMed interface has changed! Much of what you may have been used to has been revised or relocated. Here's a few of the changes:
The new interface includes more changes than those listed above. Lots of details, with screen shots included, may be found in this NLM Technical Bulletin article. Please note that PubMed functionality has not changed, only display.
We are happy to announce that the Public Health Library will be able to resume our Saturday hours (noon-5 pm) starting this coming Saturday, October 24th.
Gifts from UCB student parents are being used to fund the Saturday hours. All subject-specialty libraries across campus will resume their Saturday hours by mid-November.
The actions of UCB students, such as the Teach-In that took place at the Anthropology library on October 9-10, also contributed to this change. Thank you!
