Thanks to funding from the College of Engineering, as of 3/2 the Engineering Library has extended its hours. This is a pilot project that will run through spring 2015.
The hours for the spring and fall semesters are now as follows:
Monday-Thursday 9 am-midnight
Friday: 9 am-7 pm
Saturday: 1 pm-5 pm
Sunday: 1 pm-11 pm
Beginning Feb. 1, Doe Library will be open from 9 to 5 pm on Saturdays.
In tandem with the Library providing a temporary home for the Berkeley Institute of Data Services (BIDS) in 190 Doe, the Vice Chancellor for Research has committed the funding to extend Doe Library hours. This funding covers the costs associated with opening on Saturdays, one of BIDS' faculty priorities as well as one of the recommendations from the Library Commission's report.
On Saturdays library visitors can enter through Doe North, Doe South, and Gardner Stacks as well as access Doe Circulation, Graduate Services, and Art History/Classics Library. This is terrific news for everyone who likes to study, browse and research in Doe Library, with several hundred more seats available on weekends, and enhanced research computing stations soon to be added to Floor 2. It is particularly meaningful for humanities graduate students and faculty, with extended hours access to core texts and research/writing spaces associated with Graduate Services and Art History/Classics Library.
The winter 2014 issue of Fiat Lux, the Library's newsletter, is now available online. You will find in it Tom Leonard's "travel tips from the stacks"; profiles of three Library student employees; highlights from an exhibit on the Berkeley Student Co-op; and a story about outdoors sculpture on campus.
