Stay up all night, all week long at the UGL ! Beginning Sunday, October 3, the Undergraduate Library will begin a pilot service that will extend the hours at the UGL for all Wayne State students, staff and faculty. Until May 3, the entire UGL will be open 24 hours Sunday-Thursday. The regular hours will be:
Sunday: Open at 11 am
Monday through Thursday: Open 24 hours
Friday: Closing at 9 pm
Saturday: 9 am to 9 pm
Exceptions include holidays, days surrounding holidays, and Intersession.
The extended library hours will be open ONLY to currently registered students, faculty and staff between the hours of 11 pm and 8 am during Fall 2010 and Winter 2011 semesters. All visitors or non-registered students will be asked to leave the library.
The following services will be provided:
• 24-hour support from the Library Computing Help Desk
• Access to Reserve materials
• A safe, quiet environment for study and collaboration ensured by two Library Monitors on duty
In-person Reference services will not be available. If our evening staff is unable to answer a question, then patrons may submit questions to the online “Ask-A-Librarian” service and a librarian will respond as soon as possible, usually the next day.
After 11 p.m., students, staff and faculty must enter the building through the Extended Study Center entrance and show their OneCard. For students, staff and faculty that are already in the building and wish to stay after 11 pm, they must present his or her OneCard to a Library Monitor upon request. Anyone who cannot show their OneCard will be asked to leave.
This endeavor is made possible by the WSU Student Senate, Provost Ronald Brown and the Library System.
