September 17 is Consitution Day, the anniversary of the signing of our country's founding document.
Downtime completed: As of 11am on Friday September 9, the following are once again available after last night's maintenance work and this morning's hardware problem:
Update: The library has arranged for refunds of unused value on expired Equitrac copy cards to be available through September 30, 2011.
This includes cards for individuals (UCB students, staff, faculty and non-UC guests) and those purchased with departmental funds.
To request a refund, bring the card to the Library Business Services office, 110 Doe Library (open Monday-Friday 9am-noon and 1-5pm). You may also make an appointment by sending email to printcopy[at]lists.berkeley.edu.
Some parts of the library website will be down for maintenance from midnight Friday, September 2, through as late as 3am Saturday:
Update: The Heyns (East) Reading Room and Rosberg Reading Room reopened on Monday November 15, ahead of schedule. These rooms are located on the second floor of Doe Library (PDF floorplan)
This closure is necessary because of the extent of work needed to replace fire sprinkler pipes as part of a major maintenance project on the 100-year-old building, and the fragility of the plaster ceiling.
These rooms house the current periodicals (magazines and journals) for Doe and Moffitt Libraries. During the closure period:
Online versions of many periodical titles are available on public computers in the Reference Hall (between the North and Heyns Reading Rooms) and in Room 190 (next to the building's North Entrance).
Other study spaces such as the North Reading Room, Gardner (Main) Stacks, and Moffitt Library will not be affected by this closure.
