== '''Guidelines for Setting Library Hours'''  ==
 
 
 
'''Library hours are subject to change'''; reduced staffing and budget resources may require reduced hours<br>
 
 
 
'''Guiding Principles'''<br>'''Primary guiding principle: Match college calendar - closed when college is officially closed'''<br>
 
 
 
*Significantly reduce open hours during semester and holiday breaks
 
*Hours at branch libraries the same when possible, varying only when use statistics warrant a difference
 
*Main Library will stay open longer than the branches when use statistics and activity warrant

*The Music Library - open regular hours during Fall and Spring semester exam periods
 
*Armstrong Library - hours may be extended on weekends during exams if use activity and exam schedules indicate a need (TBD on a semester by semester basis)
 
*Fall Midterm break and Winter Carnival break - reduce hours at Main Library; close Armstrong and Music Libraries<br>
 
*Closed on Wednesday prior to Thanksgiving<br>
 
 
 
'''Summer'''<br>
 
 
 
*Closed on July 4th <br>
 
*Reduced hours the first 2 weeks of LS<br>
 
 
 
'''Routine Processes'''
 
 
 
*Review activity, user stats and staffing resources to determine changes to hours; regularly evaluate for possible budget savings Remind the community in advance when hours will vary from routine – Exams, break periods, Holidays
 
*Regularly alert the user community – all staff/faculty/student - to any change in the regular library hours – spring break, fall break, Thanksgiving, Exams, Holidays, inter-session periods<br>
 
*Provide advance notice and consult with constituent and user groups regarding library hours; consult with Scheduling
 
*Announcements will be generated from the Office of LIS Administration to all fac/staff/students<br>
 
*By email - 1 week in advance; by web/blog if possible
 
*Post regular summer hours (in addition to regular AY hours) on the web; and on the LIS blog
 
*Post signage at doors and service points to remind the community of upcoming varying hours – 1 week in advance
