The final week of the Fall 2011 semester has arrived, and the Library wishes good luck to all students taking finals and completing final projects this week. The following are some important reminders of which students should be aware concerning the Library facilities in the last week of this semester:
- The Library will be open this week, December 12-15, 2011, Monday through Thursday, from 7:45am to 8pm. The Library will close for the Fall 2011 semester on Thursday, December 15, 2011 at 8pm.
- All materials must be returned to the Library by 8pm on Thursday, December 15, 2011, the last day of finals.
- If borrowed materials are not returned to the Library by 8pm on Thursday, December 15, 2011, students will be charged replacement costs. All fines and fees must be paid before Friday, December 16th, 2011. Failure to return borrowed materials and/or pay fines will result in holds placed on students’ accounts, preventing future registrations, access to transcripts, and so on.
- While the Library will not be open during Winter Break, a staff member will generally be available for students who need to pay fines. Students may call 741-6755 or 741-8781 in advance to confirm that someone is available.
We wish everyone a relaxing, restful Winter Break and look forward to working with you once again in the Spring 2012 semester. Yuba College Library will reopen for the Spring 2012 semester on Tuesday, January 17, 2012 at 7:45am.
The 49er Library ConNeX, Yuba College Library’s newly-named temporary location, is functioning in full swing this Fall semester in its new location: Building 300 (the cafeteria). The 49er Library ConNeX will be located in Building 300 for the next two years while the library’s original location, Building 1100, is renovated and transformed into a high-tech, 21st century library! It is expected that the renovation of the library’s original location, Building 1100, will be completed in 2013. Thus, for the next two years the 49er Library ConNeX, which shares Building 300 with the cafeteria, will be the temporary home of the Yuba College Library.
Although the library has been down-sized a bit to fit into its new location that it shares with the cafeteria, all of the library’s services remain the same. The 49er Library ConNeX displays over 4,000 materials, offers to retrieve library-owned materials if they are not currently located in the temporary library, provides access to an InterLibrary Loan service, contains a Cyber Lab for student’s computing needs, and features a quiet space for student study. In addition, students are encouraged to use the library for research assistance and are welcome to make appointments with the librarian — via phone at (530) 741-6592, SMS text at (530) 359-8220, as well as by approaching the reference desk — for research, reference sources, and citation assistance.
The 49er Library ConNeX offers new, extended hours this Fall semester at the Yuba College Campus:
- Monday – Thursday: 7:45am – 8pm
- Friday: 7:45am – 4:30pm
We hope that you will visit the library’s new location in Building 300 and take advantage of its collections and services. We look forward to serving you at the library this semester!
The transition of moving the library to its temporary location has been completed! The move went exceptionally well, and we were able to bring over 4,000 books and media materials to the new 49er Library ConNex! The 49er Library ConNex will be offering new, extended hours for the Fall in order to accommodate growing needs of Yuba College’s students. We are so excited about providing more hours to students, and we really hope that you will take advantage of the extended schedule! The 49er Library ConNex will be opening August 15 for the Fall Semester.
New Fall Hours:
Monday – Thursday: 7:45am – 8:00pm
Friday: 7:45am – 4:30pm
The new library location will provide thousands of resources for students, faculty, and staff. However, if you find something in the catalog that is not located at the 49er Library ConNex, you can request that the materials be brought over to the new location. You can request materials through the library catalog or in-person at the library – and remember, you can also request materials from other campuses as well! We will be at this new location for two years during the major remodeling project and then reopen at the freshly remodeled library in 2013.
Come visit the Cyber Lab! We will have all types of technology and equipment to meet your needs, including: computers, printers, WiFi, copiers, resources for DE testing, and more! We will also provide a quiet study area for students who need to complete studies and research in a quiet environment.
We are so excited about the innovative changes being made to the Yuba College Library and hope that you are too! We understand that the temporary location is smaller in size and has a new atmosphere due to the close proximity of the cafeteria. We greatly appreciate the flexibility of our students as we work to create a newly remodeled library!
So, stop by the 49er Library ConNex to see our technologically advanced Cyber Lab, take advantage of our extended hours schedule, and find a quiet place to complete your studies. We are here to help!
