Entry and Access Changes for Sterling Memorial Library

Sterling Memorial Library’s (SML) hours of entry have been extended during the 15- month renovation of the Cross Campus Library (CCL). For the fall 2006 semester, SML will replicate CCL’s normal hours of entry, including the popular late night study hours.

Starting on Wednesday, September 6, 2006, SML will close at 1:45am Sundays to Thursdays; 9:45pm on Fridays; and 6:45pm on Saturdays. Check the library’s “hours” website for the complete fall 2006 schedule of hours and exceptions [].

Also beginning on September 6, entry into SML after 6pm from Sundays through Fridays will now be restricted to only those who are holders of Yale University or Yale Library identification cards. This restriction will maximize the availability of library resources for Yale-affiliated readers during the popular evening hours.

As a reminder, the CCL collection is now located in SML, on floors 1, 1M, and 1MB in the SML stack tower. More information, photos, and current updates can be found at the renovation website:
