Welcome back for Academic Year 2021/22
We missed you at Penrose and we’re excited to see everyone back this fall. Some things have changed so read on for more info on those changes.
What are the hours?
For this academic year, the library will be open:
Monday-Thursday, 8:30 am-11:00 pm
Friday, 8:30 am-6:00 pm
Saturday, noon-6:00 pm
Sunday, noon-11:00 pm
Is the whole library open?
Yes, all 4 floors are open again and you can browse the stacks.
Can I still request books for pick up?
Yep! The “request for pickup” button will remain in Sherlock. If the item is on the shelf, you will be directed to the Circulation Desk to checkout and pick-up your book, DVD, etc.
Has printing changed?
There are not going to be self-service printers in the library, but Centralized printing is moving to an alcove on the main floor of the library. Printouts will be available for pick-up during normal library open hours. More info to come from WCTS.
How can I get in touch with a librarian?
We will still be hosting drop-ins from 9-12, 1-4, but you can also reach us on chat from the library homepage or send in a question on the Contact a Librarian page.
Are reserves back?
Yes! Just go to the circ desk and give your class number.
Is the archives open?
The Archives is open for research in the reading room. While appointments are no longer necessary, consultation with archives staff ([email protected]) before you come will ensure a more productive experience for you.
