Library Service Hours Changes

The vendor that the Library has used for overnight coverage of e-mail and for online chat services will be discontinuing this service after June 30, 2014. We have carefully explored other options while also considering the tight FY15 budget requirements, carefully reviewed usage statistics showing the most heavily used days and times, and consulted with both Stateside and Asia/Europe representatives on options. As a result we will be implementing the new schedule for reference services as follows beginning on July 1, 2014. All times are Eastern time.

Services hours as of July 1, 2014:

  E-Mail Chat (Instant Messaging) Phone
Monday – Thursday: 8:30am-10pm 10am-10pm 11am-5pm
Friday: 8:30am-5pm 10am-5pm 11am-5pm
Saturday:  10am-7pm 11am-6pm Not available
Sunday: 1pm-10pm 2pm-9pm Not available

We will gather information throughout the summer term and make adjustments in the hours if needed for fall 2014.
