Using the 24-hour study hall

Did you know the Gardner (Main) Stacks was voted the ?Best Place to Study? in the 2007 Best of Berkeley poll? We welcome all Cal students to the 24-hour study hall in the Stacks and the Moffitt Library, December 11-19.

Since you may be here a lot this week, here?s a friendly reminder of the rules...

Only food for thought allowed inside.
No food or drink is allowed past the security desks.

Help us keep out rodents and insects and prevent damage to books and furniture, by keeping food and drink out of the library. What is so bad about food and drink in the Library?

Library staff will confiscate any food and drink found, or escort people to the Library exits to consume those unmentionables outside. Several areas have been set aside for those who want to eat and drink while studying during finals: the Free Speech Movement Cafe; room 340 (the classroom next to the cafe); and rooms 101-106 (the Moffitt Library classroom side).

A little less conversation, please.
Take all cell phone conversations to the main lobby of either Doe Library or Moffitt Library.

People study in nooks throughout the Library and your conversations can be distracting. We have 17 group study rooms which you can reserve from the Doe Circulation Desk and several group tables near the entrance of Doe Library if you wish to collaborate.

Protect your belongings;
they can?t protect themselves.

Watch your belongings and take them with you when you leave even for a short break.

The last thing you need is to have something valuable stolen while studying. Thieves can be quick. It?s a good idea to stretch every so often and be sure to take your belongings with you when you do.

Thanks, Cal students, for working with us to keep the Library a safe, clean, and comfortable place.

Holiday gift guide

The library isn't Sharper Image or Amazon.com, but we do have some useful and attractive items for sale. Check out these holiday gift possibilities:

  • The Library Bookstore offers great prices on a wide range of scholarly and general interest books that are not needed for our collections.

  • For someone who isn't currently affiliated with the University, membership in the California Alumni Association provides a number of benefits, including the ability to get a Library Borrower's Card at no extra charge.

  • Anyone who uses our photocopiers, or prints from the public computers, will appreciate a Copy Card. It's like a BART ticket -- add as much value as you want!

  • For the bibliophile on your list, the Bancroft Library offers a variety of publications and other items including cards, posters, and T-shirts.

  • The Water Resources Center Archives' 2008 calendar, "Making the Delta," features historical images of the Sacramento-San Joaquin levee system.

  • People with an altruistic turn of mind will enjoy knowing that you've made a gift to the library in their honor.

  • We've even got stocking stuffers! The Copy Center in Moffitt Library offers pencils, notepads, computer disks, and other useful items.


Finally, if you need a break after all this shopping, we recommend a visit to the Free Speech Movement Café.
