Science & Engineering Libraries
Update: The library has arranged for refunds of unused value on expired Equitrac copy cards (both individual and departmental) to be available through September 30, 2011.
To request a refund on a card that was purchased with an individual’s own funds, bring the card to the Library Business Services office, 110 Doe Library (open Monday-Friday 9am-noon and 1-5pm). You can also make an appointment by sending email to printcopy[at]lists.berkeley.edu.
For “departmental cards” purchased with University funds, there is a different procedure.

The Engineering Library is now open!
Our newly reconfigured space includes five group study rooms with white boards and monitors for presentations, new study tables and chairs, more lounge seating, and a spacious new public computer area. Study rooms are currently first come first serve, but will be on a reservation system starting on Monday, August 29th.
Come visit, get a free Engineering Library pen, and let us know what you think of the new space!
The final renovations and testing will take a few more days. The Engineering Library will open at 8 am on Thursday, August 25th.
On Monday, August 22nd, the book return bin will be moved to the lower level of Bechtel Engineering Center, just outside the Engineering Library. It is currently on the 2nd floor of Bechtel, just outside the entrance to Sibley Auditorium.
