New No-Smoking Policy

The College is strongly committed to maintaining and improving the health and well being of all students and employees in providing a safe and healthy work and study environment, free from potential health hazards.
Smoking is prohibited throughout all Hastings buildings, facilities and other properties, including the exterior areas, stairwells, and balcony areas of all three buildings.
Signs will be posted in accordance with this policy.

Still Moving…

Can you believe it? We are still unpacking boxes, unloading carts, and moving into the Library. It’s a very slow process but it’s coming along. The NewCal copy center has moved into their nice, large room on the 4th floor and they are getting ready to open for business. It’s almost time to start printing up the orientation packets…

4th Floor Shelving Now Installed

Shelving on the 4th floor of the Library has been installed and our workers are getting dusty from unpacking all the boxes of Federal Registers that have been in storage for the past two years. Other items being moved onto the 4th floor are the new computers for the lab, the re-vamped reference collection, the renamed Research Alcove collection, and a newly created popular reading area.
The items chosen for the popular reading area were selected from a poll we did last spring. Titles were chosen based solely on student input. We are pleased with the new collection and hope the incoming students like what the current and departing students selected!

200 Building Re-Occupation

All Library staff have moved back into the 200 Building and believe it or not, sometimes we get lost in the new space! There are hallways where there didn’t used to be, bookshelves where there used to be storage rooms, and seating for students where there used to be offices. The books are still being moved in to their places on the bookshelves. We don’t expect the new furniture for another couple of weeks yet. It seems like we are still on schedule for our Fall Re-Opening. More photos to come later.

Change to Skyroom Hours

Effective Monday, June 11, the Skyroom will open at 1:00 (instead of 2:00) so that you can go to the Skyroom directly from your BARBRI classes.
The north room of the Skyroom will be used primarily for group study, talking, eating and cell phone usage. Please be considerate of your colleagues and maintain quiet in the rest of the Skyroom; also, do silence your cellphones.
The Skyroom Assistants will post signs to notify you of any days/times that the Skyroom will be closed.
