After a year of experimenting and assessing hours, the Health Sciences Library recently decided to make 12 midnight the closing time Sundays thru Thursdays. This increase to 101 hours/week will become standard library hours starting in January 2011. These hours will be offered throughout the year regularly, including the summer, and only be interrupted by University and State holidays along with light reductions late in December and around holiday times. This change represents a 15% increase in hours from when HSL first moved to the AMC from the 9th and Colorado campus.
The library will continue to assess student comments and needs around hours alongside its budget and the appropriate allocation of student fee revenue. Regular hours for 2011 with some exceptions will be as follows:
|Mon – Thu||7:00 am – 12:00 Midnight|
|Fri||7:00 am to 6:00 pm|
|Sat||10:00 am to 6:00 pm|
|Sun||10:00 am – 12:00 Midnight|
