Happy 2012 to the University of Scranton community! The Weinberg Memorial Library faculty and staff is back from the holiday, and we’re ready for a new year of challenges, opportunities, work, and fun. This year is especially important to us since we’ll be celebrating our 20th anniversary all year long.
More about that later, but for now, here are our hours for Intersession (January 3 – 28):
It’s been a lovely summer here at the Weinberg Memorial Library, but we’re all excited to see our students coming back to campus for the Fall 2011 semester. As long as Irene doesn’t interfere, we’ll be here this weekend to welcome our new students and welcome back our returning students and faculty:
Saturday, August 27: 12pm – 6pm
Sunday, August 28: 12pm – 11:30pm
And then we’ll begin our regular Fall hours:
Monday – Thursday: 8am – 11:30pm
Friday: 8am – 10pm
Saturday: 12pm – 8pm
Sunday: 12pm – 11:30pm
And as always, our 24-hour spaces on the first floor will be open (you guessed it) 24 hours a day with a Royal Card swipe. We look forward to seeing all of you!

We’re already halfway through the semester, which means Fall Break is here. Even the Library takes a break at this point in the semester, which means we’ll have limited hours this weekend:
Friday, October 8th:
8:00 am–4:30 pm
Saturday–Monday, October 9th-11th: Closed
We reopen at 8:00 am on Tuesday, October 12th. Also, the Pro Deo Room as well as the New 24 Hour Space will be open all weekend, and are accessible by swiping your Royal Card. You can also get help from a librarian while we’re closed via our 24/7 Chat Reference service.
The Technology Support Center just announced that the software upgrades intended for this weekend have been postponed. This means that email, Angel, and my.scranton will be available over Fall Break. Library online resources (databases, catalog, interlibrary loan, course reserves) will all be accessible as usual, though the building will still be closed over the weekend.
Here’s the official notice from the Support Center:
The hardware and software upgrades scheduled for October 9 – 12 have been postponed. These upgrades will be rescheduled at a later date. University enterprise computer systems will be available as normally scheduled. As always, information technology questions or problems can be directed to the Technology Support Center can be reached at x4357 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, the Library building will be closed from 4:30 pm on Friday 10/9, and will reopen at 8:30 am on Tuesday 10/13 for Fall break. The 24 hour Pro Deo room will be open this weekend. Have a great break!
