Holiday Library Update

A message from the Northeastern University Libraries:

The Snell Library is going to be closing at 5pm on December 23rd, and will reopen at 8am on Thursday, January 2, 2014.

During the time we are closed, we’ve arranged to have Speare Commons open as 24/7 study space.  There’s printing and NU-Wave wifi available there. Of course, all library online resources (databases, e-journals, that kind of thing) will still be available over the break, and library technology staff will be monitoring our systems to make sure they are working.

We’ve put this information up on our website (, and we’ll be tweeting to make sure the word gets out (@clubsnell, @snell_research).
