As it does every year, Butler Library and the Rare Book & Manuscript Library will open at 1pm on Commencement Day. This year the celebrations fall on Wednesday, May 22nd.

Please plan your research agenda and travel options keeping the festivities in mind.

Here are some tunes from Columbia alumni to enjoy while you wait for the building to open.

RBML summer hours

Commencement has come and gone on Columbia’s campus. Bleachers are clattering down in front of Butler Library and RBML researchers are making their way into our reading room in a steady stream.

A few reminders:

  • Always check the RBML website for our summer hours.
  • You can complete registration and ordering materials before you arrive at RBML. This will help you know which materials need to be ordered in advance and which are readily available onsite. Materials are clearly marked in red text if they are located offsite and need to be ordered for them to be available in the reading room for your visit.
  • We have security measures to make sure that our collections are safe and accessible for all users. These include inspecting personal materials before you leave the reading room.
