The UT Health Science Center Laredo Regional Campus Library is currently undergoing some changes that will include a revision of hours and the placement of new library staff.
While the Laredo Library has been closed to the public in August, UT Health Science Center students, faculty and staff continue to have ID card swipe access 7 days per week from 7 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. There is no expected change to card swipe access days or times. Campus and public users can also contact the Briscoe Library in San Antonio for reference and circulation assistance. Calls to the Laredo Library are currently being forwarded to the Briscoe Library Circulation Desk.
Anticipated reopening of the Laredo Library is scheduled for some time in September. The library with be staffed through an agreement with the Texas A&M International Killam Library. Once reopened, the library hours will be Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (including during the lunch hour) and Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.
The new staff will provide circulation and reference assistance to campus and community patrons. The Briscoe Library will continue to oversee the circulating collection, computers, printers, copiers, and supplies and will continue to participate in library orientation/classes and Laredo community outreach events.
