In response to student demand for increased library access, the West Virginia University Downtown Campus Library will remain open until 2 a.m. Sunday through Thursday throughout the spring semester.
"Students told us they needed a place available after midnight to study, do research or finish a paper," Libraries Dean Frances O’Brien said. "The Downtown Campus Library is a convenient location for this kind of work."
The Library previously closed at midnight on those days.
The increased access will allow students to use the computers, books, periodicals and other resources for 10 additional hours a week. However, some services will be limited after midnight. The reference department and copy center will not be available, and no one can check out books.
A valid WVU ID will be required to enter the library after midnight.
The Downtown Campus Library opens at 1 p.m. Sunday, 8 a.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m. Saturday. The library closes at 2 a.m. Sunday through Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday and 6 p.m. Saturday.
