Libraries to begin graveyard shift for late-night studying

Sept. 7, 2005

Starting next week, Baylor students will be able to work around the clock in designated areas of Moody Memorial Library. This Sunday (Sept. 11) the special 24/5 hours of operation will begin for the Prichard Family Information Commons, the Allbritton Exhibits Foyer, the Moody Garden Computing Facility and the Harvey Garden. While Java City is closed, students may use the seating area for studying.

These areas will be open 24 hours a day from Sunday at 1 p.m. through Friday at 9:30 p,m. The regular library hours will remain in effect until Sunday afternoon, when the library reopens at 1 p.m.

The Information Commons on the second floor of Moody is now the central location for all laptop checkouts. The commons has 84 available laptop computers, and students may borrow them for up to four hours. For each additional hour over the limit, a $10 fee will apply, and borrowers must continue to remain in the building, said Cheyenne Kelly, computer facilities coordinator.
