This afternoon I received an IM while signed into our IM Reference Service. (BTW our screen name is uofsrefdesk, so add us to your buddy list!) A student wanted to know the Java City Hours of Operation. When I realized these aren’t posted anywhere prominent on our website, I decided this needed to be rectified. And so, here they are:
It seems to me Java City has zeroed in on all of the important parts of the week when that delicious java is essential to the hard-working (possibly sleep-deprived) student. So next time you’re in the Library ready to get started on your latest assignment, grab your beverage of choice* from Java City and make yourself at home. Java City is located in the Pro Deo Room, aka the 24-hour room, which is to your right when you walk into the library from the Monroe side of the building.
*Java City also has an array of smoothie options — and I know from personal experience that they really hit the spot!
The first week of classes is upon us! I have to say that seeing all of the students back on campus this afternoon was a welcome treat… And in honor of your return (and arrival, for all of you freshmen out there), the Library is open more often and later than we have been over the summer.
Here are our Fall 2008 hours:
Saturday, 12 Noon-8:00PM
Sunday, 12 Noon-11:30PM
Also, a heads up about Labor Day weekend, August 30th-September 1st:
We are open regular hours on Saturday and Sunday.
On Labor Day (Monday) we are open 12 Noon-11:30PM.
And as always, the Pro Deo room on the first floor of the Library by Java City is open 24 hours.
Stop by the Reference Desk on the 2nd floor and say hi — we look forward to meeting all of you!
Workmen have been busy this week installing a sun blocking film on the windows in the ProDeo room. Most people call it the 24 hour room because it is open 24/7. Officially, it’s known as the “Pro Deo et Universitate” room because it contains a listing of the names of those members of the University community who have received the Pro Deo et Universitate Award for Twenty Years or more Service to the University.
