Over the next two weekends the library service desk will have extended hours so that you can study longer for your exams!  On December 6th, 7th, 13th, and 14th we are open 10AM-10PM.  We should also note that this year, since the T is running later, our building will be open a bit later on Saturday. Swipe access will end as usual at 11PM, but you may remain in the library until 2AM!  So if you find yourself lost in study you won’t have to leave by midnight.  Good luck with your exams!

We’d like to take a moment to thank one of our Research and Instruction librarians, Katie Houk.  She has worked here at Hirsh for the past three years and has accepted a new faculty position at San Diego State University in their department of Library and Information Access.

Katie has done a lot for the library and has led the PR committee for the past year.  There is no doubt she will flourish at San Diego State and we wish her all the best.  We will definitely miss her.  Congrats!

HHSL is pleased to announce that we will be live streaming some of the TEDMED 2014 sessions in the Sackler 510 computer lab.
