Alkek Library to be closed
Saturday for electrical work
The Alkek Library at Texas State University-San Marcos will be closed Saturday for electrical power to be run to the North Campus Housing complex, currently under construction. The library will be open regular hours on Friday (7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.) and Sunday (1 p.m. to 1 a.m.).
Construction crews will shut off electricity to the Alkek Library, the Matthews Street Parking Garage, and Student Health Center from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. so that the electrical grid can be modified to bring the new dormitory online.
The library catalog and most of the databases will be available remotely. However, some electronic resources and services will not be available until power is restored. These include:
-Some business databases (Research Insight, CRSP, directEDGAR, Gartner, Morningstart Document Research, FARS)
-University Archives Records Retention Schedule.
-ILLiad (interlibrary loan system)
-Information Literacy wiki
-Online catalog Suggest a Purchase form
-Some of the Wittliff Collection online exhibits may be unavailable during this time.
In addition, some finding aids on the Wittliff Collections website will be temporarily unavailable.
