The University Libraries will offer students an overnight study space in Lied Library to use during the Spring 2018 Study and Finals Weeks.
"Typically, Lied Library has offered extended hours during this time, remaining open until 2 a.m. to offer students additional hours to utilize the library as they finish projects and papers, and have a place to study and prepare for exams," said University Libraries Dean Maggie Farrell. "In discussion with CSUN, who have consistently asked for a 24-hour study space in the library, we have implemented this pilot program for the spring semester to gauge student interest and use during the critical study period."
The Book 'n' Bean and Extended Study Area will be open from 2 a.m. - 7:30 a.m. on May 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9, and 10. Students will be required to show a UNLV ID for entry.
"While the space offers a limited numbers of seats, students will have access to quiet and open study spaces, as well as UNLV WiFi," said Farrell. "We'll also be soliciting feedback from students who utilize the study space as part of the pilot to help us further understand the needs of our student body during Study and Finals Weeks."
The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, which runs the Book 'n' Bean coffee shop, will not be providing food or beverage service during these extended hours. Students will only have access to computers and printers during main library hours.
