Stormy Weather!

Due to weather related concerns, Hahnemann library will be closed Sunday, August 28. The 24 hour area will remain open.

Hahnemann Library Hours, Labor Day Weekend and Beyond . . .

Hahnemann Library will be open Saturday, 9/3 and Sunday 9/4, from Noon to 6 p.m., but closed on Monday, 9/5 for the Labor Day holiday. The 24-hour study room will, of course, remain open through the weekend and on Monday.

After Labor Day, our summer schedule of hours (closing at 9:00 pm Monday - Thursday) will continue, most likely until the start of the Fall term. At that point, we hope to be able to hire a full roster of student employees so that we can restore our longer weekend and evening hours.

Radiology E-books: "The Requisites" series added!

Ten titles from the acclaimed "The Requisites" radiology series have been added to the Libraries' e-book collections.  Reviews of the titles in this series are uniformly positive:

". . . unique in its approach, complete in its content, and profuse in its illustrative and tabular material." (AJNR)

"Should be well received by residents preparing for their board examinations . The author is to be congratulated because she has captured the flux of breast imaging." (AJR)

24-hour Study Area: This area will now be closed off from the main area of the Library at around 5 pm on weekdays. We will follow the same closing process currently in use: patrons studying in the 24-hour area will be asked to exit through the Library.
