From May 1st to August 29th, Special Collections will open at 8 a.m. Monday through Friday instead of our usual 10 a.m. start time. Melissa Pincus has been hired to work our front desk during this test period and see how patrons respond to the earlier start time. Melissa comes to us from the University Archives where she worked on processing the Shockley Papers and she currently works part-time as a reference librarian at Menlo College.
While we are opening the room earlier in the day, it is important to note that the page schedule from SAL2 and SAL3 remains the same (10 a.m. for SAL3 and 12 noon for SAL2).
