The library will open at 10 a.m. and close at 9 p.m. on Sundays, beginning Feb. 12 and continuing through March 11, Interim Library Dean William Connors announced Thursday.
“This is an experiment to measure the apparent usefulness of Sunday morning openings,” said Connors in a written statement. “The action, encouraged by the offices of President [Donald] Christian and of Interim Provost [Cheryl] Torsney, successfully reflects efforts to increase the hours of access of this research facility. That success began earlier in the semester with the restoration of eight hours of availability on Fridays and Saturdays.”
The library will also stay open until 12:30 a.m. March 5 -15 for mid-term exams, with the exception of Friday and Saturday nights.
