Request for longer opening times at Belzberg Library

Published by Dipa Barua

Q. We, a group of frustrated students, are wondering who we might contact to contest the weekend library hours at the Vancouver campus. The 5pm closing hours, especially during finals, is extremely early. Many of us work jobs and live in Vancouver (and, of course, pay substantial tuition to do so). We are dependent on library computers, printers, books, and other resources to complete our course work. Have the closing hours always been this early? Could you please tell me who is in charge of choosing library hours so we can connect with them?

A. Thanks very much for getting in touch about the library hours at Belzberg.  Library and other service hours for the Vancouver campus are developed by reviewing considerations such as budget, security, class schedules and demand, and I would be pleased to meet with you and hear your suggestions for improvements.  Please contact me directly by email at marotz@sfu.ca to set up a time to discuss further.

 

Best,

Karen Marotz
Head, Belzberg Library
