Colm Tóibín lecture online

Did you miss Colm Tóibín's visit to the library last week? Well, you're in luck! We recorded his reading and lecture at the library and you can now watch it online at your leisure. The video is a little over an hour long and encompasses the entire presentation. The sound level of the recording is a little low, so you will want to turn up the volume on your computer's speakers before you begin. We hope you enjoy it!

Extended Hours for Final Exams

Once again, the main lobby area of the Loyola/Notre Dame Library will be open overnight on several days during finals. The rest of the library (book stacks, etc.) will remain open until 2am but will be closed off for the overnight hours. Overnight access will be limited to current students from Notre Dame and Loyola; all students will be required to show their institutional ID to enter. For security reasons, at 2am the entire building will be cleared, and those who wish to stay will have to show their IDs. (Think of it as a chance to stretch your legs and pick out a new seat!)

On the following days, the Ferguson Gallery at LNDL will be open from 2am - 8am:

Tuesday, April 27 - Saturday, May 1
Monday, May 3 - Thursday, May 6
Monday, May 10 - Thursday, May 13

This means that at least a portion of the building will be open continuously from:
8am on Monday, 4/26 through 8pm on Saturday, 5/1
and again from
10am on Sunday, 5/2 through 2am on Friday, 5/7
and finally, from
noon on Sunday, 5/9 through 2am on Friday, 5/14

In addition, the library will be open from 8am - 10pm on Friday, 5/7; 10:30am-8pm on Saturday, 5/8; and 8am-5pm on Friday, 5/14. (Please check the website for more information about library hours.)
