Fall semester welcome

Welcome to the Wheelock College Library’s newly-redesigned blog! We’ve made many changes to this site, to the Library’s website and to the Library itself, which we will highlight in the coming weeks.

One of the main differences in the Library is that we have shifted some of our collections to new homes. The majority of the video collection is now housed on Floor 2, making it browsable. Now you can scan the shelves for titles of interest, or you can always check the Videobook to search by subject or by title.

Books are now located on floors 3M, 4 and 4M as follows:

Floor 3M: 000 – 306.7
Floor 4: 306.7 – 808
Floor 4M: 808 – 999

Library hours, starting September 5, will be Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Sunday, noon to 11 p.m. The Library is closed Monday, September 3, for Labor Day, and will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, September 4.

We encourage you to stop by and pick up a copy of the updated Library User’s Guide or check the website for more information on changes around the Library. And as always, we encourage your feedback here on the blog.

Hope everyone has a great semester!

Farewell to the trees

For those of you whose offices don’t overlook the Library Green, you may not know it yet, but the tree removal has begun. We at the Library will have a front-row seat for the construction of the new Campus Center and Student Residence, and we’ll be posting photos and updates as events warrant.

But first, a last look at the Library Green as it was. This photo was taken May 16, 2007.

Closing early August 3 and change of regular hours

The Library will close at 2 p.m. on Friday, August 3, in celebration of the summer commencement ceremony.

The end of summer classes also marks a change in the Library’s regular hours. Starting Monday, August 6, and continuing through Tuesday, September 4, the Library will be open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. We will be closed Saturday and Sunday. Fall hours will begin with the start of school on Wednesday, September 5.

Congratulations to the summer graduates!
