Welcome back!

Wow, that was a fast summer.  But here we are… it’s Labor Day weekend, every food or drink you can imagine comes in a pumpkin or apple flavored variety, and school is starting again.  No matter what the calendar says, it’s fall, so welcome back (or for our new students, welcome for the first time) to Bryant University!  Remember that the library is here to serve all of your informational needs – big or small, academic or not – so swing by whenever you need.

Best of luck to you all in the semester ahead!

RIP Maya Angelou

angelouThinking of Maya Angelou, who passed away this morning at the age of 86.  Whether you knew her from her poems, memoirs, activism, public appearances (the 1993 inauguration of President Clinton was a big one), TV or movie appearances, music, or even just parodies of her (David Allen Grier did an amazing impression), she cast a long shadow in art and in life.

Important Info About Study Room Closings

Bello Center second floor study rooms 203 – 211 (the ones encircling the Grand Hall) and 215 & 216 (the two inside the quiet area) will be unavailable for booking or student use as of Thursday, May 1st, and will remain unavailable for the rest of the summer.  Rooms 201 and 202 will remain available for the time being (at least through July, when they will be used as offices for a series of summer conferences), though this is subject to change.

The study rooms in question will serve as temporary office space for our colleagues in University Relations, who are being displaced by the latest round of summer construction in the Unistructure.  These rooms will reopen for student use in the Fall 2014 semester.

In the meantime, we’ll do what we can to help you find alternative spaces to work and study during this busy period, whether elsewhere in the library or around campus.  If you have suggestions for good study locations, please share them with us so we can pass the word onto others.

Thank you for your understanding, and best of luck with final exams.
