In order to create a more secure environment for both students and staff, access to the Hatcher Graduate Library between midnight and 2 a.m. now requires a valid MCard.
All visitors must pass their MCards over a card reader to enter the north or south lobby of the Hatcher building between midnight and 2 a.m. The change applies Sunday through Thursday, when the library is open until 2 a.m.; the Hatcher Library closes at 7 p.m. on Fridays and 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays.
The connecting walkway between the Hatcher Library and the Shapiro Undergraduate Library will continue to remain open until 2 a.m. The Shapiro Library is open 24 hours a day, and requires MCard access between 12 a.m. and 7 a.m.
