Study Space Update 8/29/08

August 29th, 2008

Cafe 101

The Cesar Chavez Student Center, along with the Division of Information Technology (DOiT), has stepped forward to help address the dramatic reduction in study space the campus will face once the Library building closes later this semester. Cafe 101 on the ground floor of the Student Union is now open extended hours and will soon have expanded wireless coverage courtesy of DOiT.


Mon-Thur: 7am-10pm
Friday: 7am-4pm
Saturday: 8am-2pm
Sunday: Closed

2nd Floor Library Study Space

Now that it looks like most Library services will continue to be offered in the Library building through October, we are exploring ways to make this old building more user friendly. A modest success on this front is the opening of a new study area in the NW corner of the 2nd floor near Periodicals. There are seats for 50+ students, access to the wireless network and a few more power outlets that are usually found in the building. We hope to open additional study areas soon.

    The Cafe 101 was not open by 10AM on Saturday 8/30. So are these hours supposed to start next week?

    Sorry about that. They must have been closed because it was Labor Day weekend.

    So…let me see if I’ve got this right. The things I won’t be able to do are:
    - browse the shelves
    - look something up without necessarily checking it out
    - have books, periodicals, and computers all in the same vicinity for note-taking, etc.

    Also, I’m not clear on how access to periodicals, including microfiche, will work.

    I’m a grad student working on a lit review and a research paper this term, so I’m a little bit freaking out.

    Finally, what are the projected dates (beginning / completion) for these arrangements?

    Thank you so much,
