    May Hours
    Beginning Mon, May 13 the library will switch to summer hours (Mon-Fri, 8:30 am-4:30 pm). Consult our hours page for details for the rest of May, which include closures for the Memorial Day holiday and a staff retreat.

    Centering with Labyrinths
    Celebrate World Labyrinth Day (May 4) and take a mindful break by checking out our labyrinth displays in the rotunda of the first floor, and by walking a labyrinth through the stacks on the second floor.  Follow the arrows beginning in the fiction section (to your right at the top of the stairs through the double doors). 

    Honoring Our Seniors
    To honor graduating seniors who have worked as a student library assistant or associate, the library selects a book, dedicates it to the graduating senior, and adds it to our collection.  To peruse this year's books and honorees, check out the display on the Reference Desk.

    Rotunda Display:  Remembering Hendrix Faculty and Staff
    Upstairs browse an exhibit memorializing Hendrix faculty and staff who have recently passed. Contribute a memory to our online guestbook, and then head to the outer rotunda to peruse a new collection we've formed of Hendrix Authors.

    Academic Support
    Librarians and Library Associates are bookable for research assistance during open hours. Peer Learning happens in a drop-in fashion mostly in the library - check out their spring schedule.

    New Resources
    The library recently acquired online access to Science, which you can browse or search. Also new are additions to the legal/government database HeinOnline, including Indigenous Peoples of the Americas (History, Culture & Law), Business & Legal Aspects of Sports & Entertainment (BLASE), Animal Studies (Law, Welfare & Rights), and the National Survey of State Laws.

    Writing Center
    Writing Associates are available in the Writing Center to help with any writing endeavor - book an appointment or consult their schedule!

    Remote Access
    Everything you need to know about the library's remote services and access can be found on our Remote Access Guide, including our online catalog.
