On Friday, November 11, the library will have reduced hours in observance of Veterans Day. The circulation desk will be open from 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The building will still have normal card swipe access and will be available for you to study in.
The service desk will return to normal hours on Saturday. Librarians will be available for consultations on Monday, November 14.
We hope you enjoy the long weekend!
All I, Sarah, ever talk about is course reserves. What in the world are course reserves?
Every semester, we scour syllabi to bring you the latest and greatest editions of your required textbooks to our Library Service Desk. These books are available for checkout for four hours at a time.
But if you need them while we’re closed, you can check them out an hour before we close and return it the next day an hour after we open. Just ask someone at the desk if we have your textbook available for checkout overnight.
We don’t just have textbooks: we have test prep for MCAT, INDBE, and the Steps. We also have the DSM-5 and the AMA Manual of Style!
We can’t wait to see you at the Library Service Desk, especially the next time you need Grant’s Dissector, Essentials of Epidemiology, or Fundamentals of Fixed Prosthodontics!
The end of exam season is in sight! To help you with the final push, we are having one more weekend of extended hours. On Saturday 5/4 and Sunday 5/5, the Library Service Desk will be open from 10am-10pm. And, as is tradition, we will be having free coffee on Saturday, starting around 4pm. Best of luck with your studying!

We know you’re stressed, so we’re having a second Fun Lab this month! That’s right! You have another chance to take a creative break and feel a bit festive with pumpkin painting. Hirsh Pumpkin Patch will open at the Library Service Desk at 12pm on Thursday and Friday with all the supplies you need to make a gorgeous gourd. See you there!
In observance of Indigenous Peoples Day the Library will be open from 12-7 pm on Monday October 8th. The Library will reopen for normal hours on Tuesday October 9th at 7:45 am.
Hope you enjoy your long weekend!
Although summer temperatures linger, fall officially starts this Saturday! Wouldn’t it be nice to have a custom cozy to decorate your favorite seasonally-spiced hot drink? Stop by the Library Service Desk starting at 12pm on Thursday 9/20 and Friday 9/21 to create a cozy that’ll cradle your to-go cups and protect your hands in style. All you need to bring is your creativity!
In honor of Memorial day, the Hirsh Health Sciences Library will be closed on Monday May 28th, 2017. We will be open regular hours Friday May 25th, Saturday May 26th and Sunday May 27th. We hope that you have a restful day off and we look forward to helping you with your information needs on Tuesday May 29th.
It’s that time of year again! As you finish up your last exams, polish up your final papers and turn in your final assignments, please stop by the 4th floor library service desk to return any outstanding materials before you leave for the summer. Just a friendly reminder to those graduating this May, we need your items back before Friday May 18th so that we can sign off on your accounts.
Sticking around for the summer? We’ll be here for all your information and borrowing needs.
