Exam Access Fall 2019

Beginning the evening of Sunday, December 1, the Library will offer extended card access during the two weeks of exams. Instead of closing at midnight, the Library will close at 2 am each night for our students. This extended access will end on the last day of exams, which is Friday, December 13, at 5 pm. Our Circulation/Reserve Desk hours remain the same.


If you need a replacement ID card, please go to the Business Office to pay for a replacement card (it is still $5). You will then pick up your replacement ID card at the Information Services office near the Student Activity Center. (The Library no longer issues ID cards.)

For our students, we will generally have the Circulation/Reserve Desk open on Mondays through Thursdays from 8 am to 8 pm, on Fridays from 8 am to 5 pm, on Saturdays from 9 am to 5 pm, and on Sundays from noon to 8 pm. However, all students with a current ID can access the Library from 6 am to midnight Mondays through Fridays, from 9 am to midnight Saturdays, and noon to midnight Sundays.

These hours are always subject to change, especially during school breaks. A list of most of our holidays and breaks can be found on our Library Hours page. We will post any changes on the main ASL Library page.
