Woo hooooo! LRC is open until 2 am!

During finals, the LRC is extending its hours on a trial basis.  As of tonight, the LRC will be open from 7 am – 2 am until May 14th.

We have hired some very nice people who happen to like working late hours to make this happen, so please be nice to them.  They have the job of getting everyone to move down to the first floor at midnight so we can close down the rest of the library.  Closing the library takes a lot of effort and has many tasks, so we usually have two people on duty to close. But from midnight to 2 am we will have just one staff member on duty. Having only the Info Services area and computer lab accessible after midnight will make it a lot easier for one person to close the library at 2 am. 

Warning! There will be absolutely no talking or noise-producing activities permitted from midnight to 2 am. However, there are plenty of classrooms in Warren and the LRC where you can type, text, phone, chat, and otherwise commiserate with your fellow studiers.

We hope this works out for everyone and that it provides the extra time you need to study.

It was one of those Twilight Zone moments when you aren't quite sure if the question or the questioner are offbase.  "Where did the coke machine go?" asked the distinguished law student. Me: "Huh? Isn't it over in the corner?"  We both had a laugh over my complete lack of knowledge and at just how ready I was to divulge it.

It appears the coke machine was moved while I was looking elsewhere to the California copyroom. I checked it out and it does look good there, rather stately in its red and black robes.  Probably a better place anyway, it is much more visible and being in a room it will be less disturbing to others.

Another item on the move was the magazine rack. It walked itself over to the newspaper nook on the west side  of the Information Services floor (all the way to the right as you enter the LRC). 

What is with all this change?  It is hard to keep with it all. My head is swimming, I need some Alka Seltzer.
