1. Go Ahead, Burn that Midnight Oil

Knight Library will remain open around the clock at the end of each term during Dead Week and Finals Week to accommodate UO students, faculty, and staff who need extended hours for study and research.

Beginning at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, March 13, and running until 7 p.m. on Friday, March 23, Knight Library will be open continuously. All branch libraries will maintain their usual academic term hours throughout Dead Week and Finals Week.

A UO current ID is required during some hours.

2. Library Offers Spring Classes

Each term, the library offers general and specialized classes on varying topics to aid students in their research needs. Check out this spring's offerings.

3. Collaborations Benefit Students

The UO Libraries recently teamed with the Office of Academic Advising and UO Housing to put on a series of events designed to expand students' minds and educational futures. UO Housing's Community Conversation series tackled issues including cults and racial profiling, while academic advisers used Knight Library to offer students counseling sessions. Keep your eye on Library News for future collaborations.

4. Resource Explosion

Through the UO Libraries' participation in the Orbis Cascade Alliance, UO students have access to millions of resources, including the newly released DVD and video library at the University of Washington. More than 700 online journals were recently purchased, as well.
