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.

Last year the Library began digitizing full books for students with print disabilities. Now the Library's Baker Service accepts requests for journal articles and book chapters which will be retrieved, scanned, processed and delivered by email free of charge to patrons preapproved by the Disabled Students Program. Students eligible for this service can learn how to submit Baker Requests via the OskiCat and Melvyl library catalogs.
