Suggestion Response: Extended Hours for Pharmacy Finals

June 18, 2015

NML-Wordmark-2015-For-Blog-PostingsYour suggestions are welcome and help us to improve our services. You may make a suggestion by using our suggestion box located near the exit in the plaza level, or send a suggestion via email to:

Submitted 6/18/15

The extended hours start in May, but pharmacy students have 5 finals in the beginning of May (from the 1st – 11th) and some years it start at the end of April. If the library closes they have essentially nowhere to go. Whereas medical students have MDLs & their own cubicle 24 hours a day. So if the library’s hours were extended starting halfway through April, it would be very helpful. Medical students have exams in June, so it could be normal hours from May 11 – 24d or so if cost is an issue.


Thank you for your suggestion. We appreciate your input. We will be in the process of setting hours for the entire academic year this summer and will take your suggestion under consideration.

Summer Brings A Change in Reference Hours!

May 29, 2015

Summer is upon us! OK, not quite yet, but it is close! In an attempt to ramp up for fall orientation schedules and prepare for the launch of our new website, the Norris Medical Library is temporarily adjusting the reference desk hours. There will be no change to our chat service and phone reference service, available from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. M-F. Our reference desk hours are being shifted to on-call mornings (meaning a librarian is in the building and is ready to help, but you need to ask at any library service desk) from 9:00 – Noon, and staffing the reference desk from Noon – 5:00.

Chat and Phone Service: 9:00 – 5:00
On-Call Service: 9:00 – Noon
Reference Desk: Noon – 5:00
