3:15 p.m., March 15, 2011----The University of Delaware Library announces that the Morris Library will be open 24 hours a day beginning Wednesday, May 18, which is the first Reading Day, through Wednesday, May 25, when the Morris Library closes at 7 p.m. when the last final exam begins.
Following the existing staffing model in place from midnight until 2 a.m. the Morris Library will be staffed by Public Safety staff after 2 a.m. Library service desks will not be staffed.
As always, library electronic resources will be available 24/7.
“This change comes after a formal request by the Student Government Association to the library, and after careful coordination, planning and support of the University of Delaware Library, Public Safety and Supporting Services,” said Sandra K. Millard, assistant director for Library Public Services, University of Delaware Library.
UD Public Safety will provide staffing of the Morris Library during the late night period from May 18-25, extending their library staffing from 2 a.m. until 8 a.m. Supporting Services will extend the existing UD shuttle bus schedule that stops at the Morris Library to run until 7 a.m. when the regular daytime schedule begins.
