The significant budget reduction that FGCU is facing this year has affected all library operations and has especially impacted the budget for part-time employees. The Library relies heavily on such employees, particularly on its student workers. Without this workforce, library hours must be reduced. The new hours are based on an analysis of library usage patterns and the need to provide opportunities for both day and evening students to access library collections and services. Support for web-based library services will continue to have high priority, and it is our hope that the academic needs of the FGCU community will be met through this combination of virtual and physical library presence.
Beginning on Monday August 20, library hours will be as follows.
|Monday – Thursday 7:30 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.|
|Friday 7:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.|
|Sunday 3:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.|
