New Hours at Ebling  external link

Beginning Monday, September 18th, Ebling has some notable hourly changes for your upcoming visits.

Emulating an institutional trend at many health sciences libraries, Ebling will be shortening or curtailing its public access hours on the evenings and weekends, and significantly lengthening its hours for graduate health sciences students.

Ebling will now have 24/7 hour access available to health sciences students with card swipe access from the School of Medicine & Public Health, School of Pharmacy, School of Nursing, School of Veterinary Medicine, and allied health programs like Kinesiology, Physical Therapy, and Occupational Therapy.

New hours beginning Sept 18th:

Mon – Thurs 7:30 AM – 7:00 PM All patrons

Fri 7:30 AM – 5:00 PM All patrons

Sat/Sun 12 PM – 4:00 PM (Wiscard (all campus) access only) No public access.

All days: 24/7 access for approved health-related staff, faculty, students

We understand that these changes at Ebling hours are significant. If you have any questions about the hours or approved access, please contact Interim Director, Christopher Hooper-Lane, 263-9324 or e-mail christopher.hooperlane@wisc.edu

Thank you for your patience as we optimize study space on the campus’s West side. Please know that the evening and early morning hours will be unstaffed, so plan accordingly for your library resource needs. We will look to our patrons to respect the space, computers, and books, and trust that you will advise Ebling staff or campus security if there are issues during our absence.

You may also be interested in the altered Health Sciences Learning Center (HSLC) hours. Please make note of those if you are planning to visit.

Thank you for your attention, and best wishes for a successful semester.

Welcome to Ebling Library  external link

We hope you had a restorative summer. For those returning to campus, Ebling undoubtedly looks very different. For those using Ebling for the first time, you will see some distinctly non-library “action” going on. We have been under demolition and reconstruction since mid June. There are different timetables for how quickly our new, enhanced spaces will be usable.

Depending on the day, the Historical Reading Room on the 3rd floor may be the quietest area. The group study rooms, also on the 3rd floor should be available shortly, with enhanced technology. There are earplugs near the front entrance and on the 3rd floor. Though our space, especially the quiet space is evolving, our services remain the same. Whether you need a laptop, a book, help with a database search, inter library loan, a tutorial on a citation manager like EndNote or, a view of the lake while you study, please, just ask. Exciting things to come!

Thanks IR Students, You Helped Us Transform  external link

Over the past two years Ebling Library’s Transformation Project group removed, relocated or deaccessioned 100,000 journals from our third floor. We cannot let the summer go by without giving a shout-out to our former Information Resources (IR) student employees who played a vital role in successfully completing this project by its deadline.

As soon as the Transformation plans became official, the student employees in Ebling’s IR department were asked to stop their typical library work and contribute to this much larger project. From the early planning days of measuring shelves and counting volumes, through the many months of packing up boxes (over 9,000!) and sending journals to campus storage, teams of students worked together to keep the project moving along on track.

Many journals with online access will not be kept on campus so IR students also helped to analyze journal content and remove advertisements, important articles, and ephemera to save in a collection in Ebling’s historical Vault.

Throughout all of the stress, sore muscles & bruises, and moments of chaos and sheer frustration we did have a lot of silly, good times too! (Sometimes it’s important to give your Sharpie markers names, right?)

Our thanks go to Jamie Beitel, Brittney Boldt, Patrick Coleman, Miranda Dam, Salvatore DiVita, Amanda Dombkiewicz, MaryGrace Floeter, Michael Kaelin, Elease McLaurn, Kayla Naus, Devin Schneider, Jiabao Zhang, Shanti Varma-Lenz, and Tanner Wolf.

Contributed by IR supervisor, Amanda Lambert.

View of IR with journals ready for review. There were hundreds of cartloads brought from the 3rd to the 2nd floor.

Construction Continues, Disruption Increases, Caring Heightens  external link

Welcome to the exciting world of summer construction, in what you expect to be a quiet, contemplative space; Ebling Library. Our profuse apologies up front. The construction on our 2nd and 3rd floors promises to go at least until the 2nd week of August. After that you will see many spatial enhancements. In the meantime, for your comfort here are a few suggestions.

1) The glassed in Historical Reading Room on the 3rd floor is often quieter than the open spaces. You are welcome to work in there.

2) There are ear protectors near the HSLC 2nd floor elevator, near the Library’s Circulation desk, and will soon be available at the desk itself. Just ask.

3) Go elsewhere (but promise to come back). Steenbock Library is not too far afield, at 550 Babcock Drive. There is a wonderful graduate student lounge at Memorial Library, downtown, at 728 State St. Ask at the front desk, they will point you to the lounge.

4) Go elsewhere (closer). Both the Schools of Nursing and Pharmacy have multiple areas for study, with WiFi, etc.

Please let us know if you need anything during this dynamic interlude.

And this from the School of Medicine & Public Health:
Please remember, the HSLC is going to be a functioning construction site over the next year, so the building will be louder than normal and different areas of the building will be opening and closing on different dates. The construction team is working hard to minimize noise during normal class hours throughout Fall and Spring semesters. We apologize for any inconvenience but are very excited about the big changes to come to the HSLC. Thanks for your continued patience while we improve your building! And here is the UW HSLC Enhancement Project Website

Two views of the 3rd floor former Journal area…it’s changed a wee bit.

Important Changes in Ebling for the Summer  external link

To all those that use Ebling for quiet, solace, relaxation or group study space; first let us apologize for what will be a dynamic summer in this traditionally accommodating building. Interior signs have been promising reconstruction, construction and changes for some time. Today, June 28th, the dismantling of the journal shelves on the 3rd floor began. It is noisy, both in the take down, and in the removal from our site. Once the shelving is removed, construction will begin. As you will read below, many areas will be off limits or severely limited for use. Staff at the Service Desk (2nd) floor can steer you to printers, computers, and available space. Please let us know if we can help during this transitional time at Ebling.

Entire 3rd floor south bar to be closed from July 1 – August 11
No access to group study rooms

1) No access to the bar overlooking the atrium with InfoCommon computers
2) No copy center on 2nd floor
3) 2nd floor Med School printer to be relocated by the Rubinstein Herman files (by 3rd floor freight elevator)
4) 2nd floor B&W Go Print release station to be relocated by the Rubinstein Herman files (by 3rd floor freight elevator)
5) 2nd floor color Go Print release station to be relocated to the 3rd floor copy center
6) 2nd floor copier and scanner to be stored with only access to copying and scanning in the 3rd floor copy center
7) Noise to be expected in the entire building July 1 – August 11
8) Electricity, HVAC and water to have expected down periods

The Historical Reading Room, the glassed area on the 3rd floor with the display cases, may offer some quiet space. Consider finding a temporary new place to study on the west campus during this time period.

After August 14 we can expect a quieter time with group study rooms to be restored, etc.
For an overview of the entire project, visit here.
