Library Hours

RBD Library is back to it’s 24-5 schedule for the Fall Semester. That means we will open at 1 p.m. Sunday afternoons and stay open until 6 p.m. Friday nights. Saturday hours are 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. Remember that the Reference Desk closes at midnight and the DRL at 2 a.m. on weekdays.

Labor Day Hours for RBD are Friday, August 29, close at 6 p.m. Saturday 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. and closed on Sunday. RBD will reopen at 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 1 and resume the regularly scheduled hours. You can always check out the Library Calendar for RBD’s hours as well as the two branch libraries.

AubieCat and Bookmarking

The AU Libraries’ catalog, AubieCat has long had the ability for a user to create a persistent link to most searches and records within the catalog. This can be done by scrolling to the bottom a screen, clicking on and then cutting and pasting the URL from the pop-up box. Nice feature, but it resulted in some extremely long and complex addresses. Well, now you can tag or bookmark individual records from the catalog into your preferred social bookmarking subscription. Look for the button towards the top of a catalog record’s labeled display. Then choose from over 30 bookmarking options. Everything from “Favorites” to “NetVouz” is available including such standards as “Delicious”, “Twitter” and “Google Bookmarks”.
