25th Anniversary of the Loma Prieta Earthquake Exhibit

Posted on 09.27.14
LP25-90in-TitleThe Library’s Fall wall exhibit has just been launched in the recently refurbished main library of the Hayward campus.

The display is a joint effort by the CSUEB University Libraries and the CSUEB Department of Environmental Health and Safety, produced to call attention to earthquake safety in our region.

The core of the display commemorates the 25th anniversary of the October 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake that caused widespread damage in the San Francisco Bay and Santa Cruz areas.

Other components call attention to the Great California Shakeout earthquake safety drill (runs through October 17, 2014), and an additional set of posters and display items highlight 3 major Bay Area quakes, including the 1868 Hayward, 1906 San Francisco, and 2014 Napa earthquakes.

The exhibit will run through March 1, 2015.

Update: Library Construction During the Summer

Posted on 07.07.14

Update: Due to the ongoing smell from the roofing materials, for the rest of the Summer Quarter, the Library will be closing at 5 PM There will be ongoing construction on the library roof throughout the summer. This is very important deferred maintenance that will protect our library collections, but it may cause some disruption for library users over the summer. You may hear some noise and smell the roofing materials while you are in the building. It also may be necessary to close the library at times for the comfort of employees and patrons. You may also experience diminished cell phone service in the library building until work on the roof is completed.

Please contact John Wenzler, Dean of Libraries, or the Library Administration office at (510) 885-3664 if you have any questions

New! Reserve a Group Study Room Online

Posted on 07.02.14

To provide equitable access to our Group Study Rooms, the University Libraries have implemented a new, mobile friendly, online reservation system. Now you can check to see if one of our rooms is available and reserve it from your phone even before you make the trip over to the library. It is quick and easy.

To give everyone a chance to use these highly popular rooms, we are limiting each student to one hour per day (of course, if you have 2 or 3 people in your group, each of you can make a reservation so that your group has 2 or 3 hours to use the room).

See our Group Study Room policies for the details or contact the Media Reserves desk at 510-885-3770 if you have questions … Or go ahead and call D!BS on a Study room right now
