New Science Library Annex Hours
This summer, the Science Library Annex on South Rd. (back of Wilson Library) will institute new hours. Through June 30, the Annex will be open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Beginning July 1 and continuing through the academic year, hours will be Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
These changes reflect use patterns that we have tracked at the Annex over five years. During this time, in-person transactions, gate counts, and circulation have steadily declined. We are adjusting operating hours accordingly.
Staff from the Annex will continue to provide service and share their expertise in new locations around the UNC Library. And, of course, the excellent staff of the HSL are also available to help patrons obtain the materials they need.
Options to access Annex materials
In addition to visiting the Science Annex during regular service hours, Carolina BLU allows you to request books and journals from the Annex or any campus location. We typically scan journal articles and deliver them to you via email within one to three business day. Book requests placed Monday through Friday are generally ready for pick-up at Davis Library within 24 hours, or we can deliver them to your departmental campus mailbox or another campus library within one to three business days. (Note: Books requested by HSL patrons must still be picked up at the Health Sciences Library for now. We hope to offer more pick-up choices at a future time.
