Reunion Weekend: Saturday Hours

Welcome back, alumni! Dinand Library will be open from 10 am – 4 pm on Saturday June 2nd and Saturday June 9. Stop by to visit your favorite study carrel and browse through your yearbook. You can also view digitized copies of the Purple Patcher here: https://crossworks.holycross.edu/purple_patcher/

Looking for Finals Study Space?

Looking for a quiet study space? The Center for Teaching Lounge on the second floor of Dinand will be open to students during finals! Please check the schedule next to the door to ensure there is not an event happening during the time you would like to study.

Please do not leave your belongings unattended to reserve study spots. If you leave a space unoccupied for 2 hours or more, we will pack up the items you left behind to free up space for others. If you have any questions, leave a comment or send an email to libcirc@holycross.edu.

Good luck with your finals!

Off-Campus Access to Electronic Resources

The library’s proxy server will be upgraded after May 16th. Until that time, library users may experience problems accessing some resources from off-campus. The library has rescheduled this upgrade until after the semester to minimize any negative impact on student research at this critical time of the semester. On-campus access is not affected. If you encounter a problem accessing resources you need, please contact Alicia Hansen or Jennifer Whelan in Research, Teaching & Learning for assistance getting the resources you need.
