Winter Break at the Libraries: What You Need to Know

Winter break is a time most students leave campus, but if you are student, PhD candidate, visiting scholar, or faculty member still at Columbia, here are some tips for making the most of intersession:

Hours: During intersession, which runs 12/24-1/16, many of the Libraries are closed on Sundays and some Saturdays, as well as University holidays falling during that time.  Be sure to check the hours page before planning a visit.

ReCap: The Libraries’ Off-site Library Shelving Facility will not be making deliveries on the following days, so please time your requests for off-site materials accordingly.

Friday, December 23
Monday, December 26
Tuesday, December 27

Friday, December 30
Monday, January 2
Tuesday, January 3

Partner Institutions: Remember that the Libraries’ are partners with Cornell University Library in Ithaca, NY, through the 2CUL program, as well as with NYU Library and the New York Public Libraries through MaRli.  If you will be traveling in the upstate New York area or would like to take advantage of another libraries’ holdings, intersession could be a great time to do that. 

Have a wonderful break!
