BDC Schedule Change, Dec. 22nd & 23rd

Now that the holiday season is here, we need to make a slight adjustment in the BDC schedule for Tues., Dec. 22nd and Wed., Dec. 23rd. Unfortunately, we don't have any docents who can be here during lunchtime on Tuesday or Wednesday to monitor the Research Room. By policy, researchers cannot use the resources in the Research Room unless a BDC staff member or docent is available to sit with the researcher. Therefore, if you want to use our Research Room on Tues., the 22nd or on Wed., the 23rd, please make arrangements to visit 10am to 12 pm or 1 pm - 5 pm. No one will be admitted to nor left to work in the BDC Research Room between noon and 1 pm.
