Doe Library wants you to write on our wall

How will you use the Doe Library this year?

We invite you to tell us (and everyone else) by writing a message on the ?Doe Library Wall, " a mobile installation that will be appearing in various locations during Doe Library's centennial year.  The wall will pose a changing series of questions and invite your responses - words, drawings, or whatever - which we may later share through an exhibit and related publications.

We hope the wall will engage our community and enable them to share their experiences with and impressions of Doe Library.

Maintenance work in Doe Library

A much needed maintenance project on the Doe Library roof and gutters begins this month and continues through approximately October 31.

Doe Library is 100 years old, and the gutters and drains are original to the building. In several places those are rusted through, and during rainstorms it is unfortunately common to have leaks throughout the building, often over the Art History/Classics Library and collections.

This work is being planned to cause the least possible disruption during fall semester, and especially around mid-terms. The noisiest work will be done from 9pm-9am and during the first four weeks of the project. Some portions of the work will be completed sooner, allowing certain operations to return to normal earlier than the final project completion date.

Visible changes during this project:

  • Scaffolding will be placed around the south, east, and west sides of the building; debris chutes and bins will be placed on the south side.
  • Update: The Heyns (East) and Rosberg Reading Rooms are closed until Monday November 14. Materials will be paged daily. Reserves have been moved to Moffitt Library.
  • The Art History/Classics Library is closed until Thursday October 13.
  • The AIDS Memorial Courtyard will be closed, and rearranged to accommodate scaffolding.
  • Overall there will be some noise and odors throughout the building during business hours.

While this work is being done, people with UC IDs might consider moving to Moffitt Library and the Gardner (MAIN) Stacks, which will be less impacted.

Your input wanted on library website

The UC Berkeley Library is trying to get a better understanding of how people use our website (http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/) and we need your help!

We are looking for any current UC Berkeley students or faculty who would like to sit down with a Library staff member and show us how you use our site. Whether you use it every day, intermittently, or have never used it, we're interested in speaking with you.

In exchange for about an hour of your time, we'll give you a $10 gift certificate to the FSM Cafe in Moffitt Library.

We will record the session, but all recordings and data collected will only be used internally for website redesign purposes.

If you are interested in helping us, please email Matthew Prutsman:
mprutsma[at]library.berkeley.edu
