News, Services, Events & Features @KSL
Really get started on your new year, now that the holiday weekend is over—24x7 returns to help you get ahead! Meet together with your study group, or find a quiet place to decompress and focus on your studies...Kelvin Smith Library's 24x7 service is there when you need it.
24x7 begins at the close of Regular Business Hours on TUESDAY night, when the library staff finish the Regular Business Hours at Midnight and a Security Officer takes over to provide a quiet, safe, secure place for you to do your work. 24x7 is in effect Fall & Spring Semesters when classes are in full session—24x7 takes a break during Fall Break and Thanksgiving holidays, so check back for changes!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
So that you never have to worry about who else is in the building with you at 2:30 a.m., 4:30 a.m., etc., your Case ID is required. No exceptions. Use your ID in the card reader at the main door, and show it to the Security Officer when asked. If anyone behind you wants to come in with you, first ask to see their ID before you let them come in on your ID. KSL is a big place, and KSL is serious about security. Just like dorms and other buildings that require security, IDs are required in KSL for everyone's safety at night.
WHAT CAN YOU USE?
Enjoy the 900 seats & tables, and all the collections in the public spaces, Group Study Rooms, wireless access (make sure your laptop is registered on the network), and after a few hours...the Lower Level vending machines. KSL SelfCheckOut computer and printers are rebooted around 4:15 a.m. so save your work frequently at night. Also note that between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m., Case Housekeeping may ask you to take a quick break from the Group Study Rooms so they can vacuum the rooms—help keep KSL clean for all to use by giving them a few minutes to do their jobs.
KSL has nearly 100 hours a week of staffed library hours & services for anyone with research needs. When 24x7 is operational, visitors are welcome to return during Regular Business Hours.
