December 2009

The University Libraries and iTech are working to enhance computing and research support for students, faculty and staff. On Saturday, Dec. 12, 2009, the current Cook Library Computer Lab (Room 105A next to Starbucks) will be closed. The furniture and equipment from this area will be incorporated into the Reference Services department (Room 109) on the first floor of Cook Library. The infrastructure to support first-rate computing equipment and Internet connectivity will be upgraded during the following two weeks and will be fully functional by Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2010. Throughout this time, the Reference Services Department in Cook Library will be open.

After Jan. 19, 2010, the Reference Services department will routinely extend its open hours from midnight to 2 a.m., thus making more study space, computing and research support available to students, faculty and staff during these hours.
