Davis Library will be closed  Monday, January 17, 2022 in observance of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day holiday.

The library will reopen with new hours for the Spring Semester 2022 on Tuesday, January 18, 2022 with the start of classes. Davis Library will be expanding its evening hours to now include Thursday nights.

Throughout the term, Davis Library will be…

OPEN Sundays from 4-8 PM;
OPEN Mondays thru Thursdays from 8 AM – 8 PM;
OPEN Fridays 8 AM – 5 PM; and
CLOSED Saturdays

Extended hours will also be offered at peak times throughout the semester…

Davis Library will be open from 8 AM – 9 PM Monday thru Thursday, March 6-11, for added study time during midterms.

The library also plans to stay open late during the last week of classes with hours from 8 AM – 9 PM Monday thru Thursday, May 2-5.

Likewise, extended hours from 4-9 PM on Sunday, May 8, and from 8 AM – 9 PM Monday thru Thursday, May 9-12, will be made available during finals week.

With the pandemic and more high-quality resources being made available online in digital formats (especially via OhioLINK, Ohio’s Academic Library Consortia) the need for late-night  in-person to the library has slightly waned. However, despite this trend, the demand for evening library hours has not completely disappeared. Consequently, Davis Library’s addition of later hours on Thursday nights is aimed at meeting this need.

The extension of the Davis Library’s hours during the semester’s busiest points is also aimed at satisfying this need while making the most effective and efficient use of the Davis Library Staff’s time, skill, and expertise.

Davis Library continually strives to be flexible and responsive to its service community’s needs. Many online services and resources are available 24/7 through its Website found at: library.rio.edu. Research Guides (LibGuides) found there offer step-by-step tutorials and more detailed instruction on how to access and use library resources on various subjects or topics. Besides in-person help, personal research assistance is also available via phone, email, text, and instant messaging (IM) chat reference services. Joining Davis Library’s Facebook Page also allows library users the opportunity to keep in touch and stay informed about the library’s various activities.
