Graduate summer session

Welcome graduate students! The Library will be open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., from June 25 to August 2.

The Library will be closed on Sundays, and also will be closed July 4 to 6 for the Independence Day holiday. We will be open, however, on July 7.

Course reserve items are held at the Circulation Desk. Please have the call number ready so the Circulation staff can locate the needed item quickly.

Research assistance is available during all regular Library hours in person, or by phone, email or IM.

If the Library is not open, you can still access a wide variety of databases and virtual reference titles and thousands of full-text journals online through the Library’s website at any time from any computer (using your Wheelock email login ID and password if prompted).

We’re here to help, so don’t be shy! Ask any staff member for assistance in person, by phone or email, or by IM where applicable. Best wishes to you for a productive summer session.
