Ask a Librarian


Library hours will vary depending on which campus library you wish to visit and also on the time of year. Summer hours are usually shorter than Semester hours. There will also be occasional special hours when a library may be open longer (for example, during exam week) or closed (such as on holidays).

You can see current library hours at the Campus Libraries information page.
