Fall Hours Reduction

Due to projected funding reduction for the upcoming 2011-2012 academic year, the Biomedical Library has looked at its resources, facilities and personnel to see where cuts may be made. The goal is to reduce cost while preserving core resources, minimizing the impact to the greatest number of our users, and keeping in mind the mission of the BL and the University.

One major change will be a slight reduction in library hours. Due to fewer staff, the Baugh (Campus) Biomedical Library will now close an hour earlier, at 10:45, Mon-Thurs, during Fall and Spring Semesters. Hours will remain the same for Friday and Saturday during those Semesters and for all days during Summer Semester. The BL will continue to provide extended hours during exam periods.

By making these changes, we feel the Biomedical Library will still be able to meet the information needs of the faculty staff and students in a timely, but cost-efficient manner.

Fall 2011 Hours
Sunday: 1:00pm-9:45pm
Monday-Thursday: 7:15am-10:45pm
Friday: 7:15am-5:45pm
Saturday: 9:00am-5:45pm

Construction Begins on Student Break Room

To Make a CoffeeConstruction has begun on a new student break room on the first floor of the Biomedical Library. The space will include snack, soft drink, and coffee vending machines, as well as a microwave and seating area. Funding for the break area in the library was provided by the Biomedical Library, College of Medicine, College of Nursing, and College of Allied Health Professions. Be sure to thank your deans for the new area to grab some refreshment between classes and study time.

While construction continues, please excuse the noise in the library. Construction will be completed over the coming weeks.

EDIT TO ADD: Construction of the break room is complete. See the pictures in the Biofeedback article and be sure to stop by the new break room for snacks, coffee, and some time to unwind before you next study session.
