Regenstein Library and Crerar Library will close an hour earlier this year.

On September 23, the University of Chicago Library announced changes to its hours for the current academic year. Starting this Tuesday, from Sundays to Thursdays, Crerar and Regenstein libraries will close at midnight instead of 1 a.m. and Mansueto will close at 11:45 p.m. instead of 12:45 a.m.

The All-Night Study in Regenstein will now open at midnight Sundays through Thursdays, one hour earlier than before. 

The Special Collections Research Center made changes to its hours on June 21, eliminating Saturday hours and extending hours on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

The University of Chicago Library said that this change has caused the Special Collections reading room to host twice as many researchers in each extended Tuesday or Wednesday evening than it had been hosting last year during each average Saturday hour. (Olivia Rosenzweig)
