Uris, the library that shares the same slope upon which many students will enjoy Slope Day, is closed for the festivities. It will close after the overnight study hours at 8 AM on May 4th. Uris can still have a place in your Slope Day as a nice background for any photos taken facing up the slope.
Here are some pieces of library news related to the annual end-of-classes celebration:
Olin Library will open at 8 am. However, the Amit Bhatia Libe Café will close at 12 pm. The front doors of Olin will close for the day at 12:30 pm. Never fear: Olin Library will be open for study until 5 pm. You’ll just need to use a different entrance that is usually closed to the public.
After 12:30pm all patrons must enter and exit Olin through Stimson Hall. If you’re already in the library, the Stimson exit is located in Kroch Library, across from the main staircase. If you’re outside, use the Arts Quad entrance to Stimson and follow signs to Kroch. All patrons entering and exiting the building through Stimson will be subject to their bags being searched. This is a necessary security measure.
In addition, several services will be discontinued for this day only. There will be no Big Red Bikes and no day lockers. If you need a book from Uris (either from the Uris stacks or on Reserve) on Slope Day, please see the staff at Olin Circulation Desk. They will be more than happy to have the book paged for you while you wait. As a bonus: you’ll find out what those numbers above the circulation desk really mean!
All of these procedures are in place for the benefit and safety of all our patrons and our collections. We appreciate your understanding, and hope that you have a safe and relaxing Slope Day. We will be here for you in the days following the event, ready to help you through study week, and the rest of your semester.
