Welcome to the last newsletter of the trimester. This one has some exciting information about what's coming up in the fall so I hope you take the time to read it.

We'll talk about the basics, including the hours we'll have over finals, undergrad finals and break. They change weekly so make sure you pay attention to which days you hope to visit.

We're also looking to hire for next trimester. Ideally, candidates will either be open to working in the mornings or in the evenings/weekends.

But the most exciting news is related to next trimester. We're getting a new study room signup format. You'll still reserve online but will be able to select half hour slots instead of 2 hour slots. Be sure to read about the rules because we will start requiring you to check in when you're using the room.

We're also expanding our hours big time and basically returning to the pre-pandemic schedule.

Finally, keep an eye out because the library website is getting an overhaul. We can't wait until you see it!

Would You Like To Work In The Library?

The library is starting to schedule student workers for next trimester and we may have some openings.

We are looking for reliable students to be at the front desk, greet customers, answer phones and direct students to resources they need.

If you're interested, submit an application here with as much information about your schedule as possible. If you have any questions, feel free to email

Study Room Signup

We wanted to preview the new study room signup process coming next trimester.

Some of the benefits include:

  • An ability to sign up for 30 minutes to 2 hours (or 4 hours for bigger rooms)
  • Start times can be on the hour or half hour
  • You get a confirmation email and a reminder
  • Easy to cancel
  • No need to wait for a new signup to be posted every week
  • A check in/check out process which will help us monitor use

We may beta the process during break so take a look.
