Library Hours for Fall Semester 09

During the upcoming Fall semester, the library will be open until 8PM Monday through Thursday.

Except for days when the campus is closed due to holidays or furloughs (as listed on the CSUDH Academic Calendar) the library's schedule will be as follows:

  • Monday - Thursday: 8:00AM - 8:00PM

  • Friday: 8:00AM - 5:00PM

  • Saturday - 11:00AM - 3:00PM

  • Sunday: Closed

We apologize for the inconvenience caused by this reduction of hours, which is a direct consequence of the CSU system-wide budget cuts implemented by the government of California.

Library Closed for State Furloughs

The library will be closed for state furlough days on Friday August 14th and Friday August 21st this month. The rest of campus will also be closed on those days.

These closures are due to a state-wide furlough of CSU employees, much like the ones already suffered by other state employees. Note that the CSU system will only be implementing two furlough days per month, however, and not three per month.

In addition, in order to continue to serve students to the furthest extent possible, Dominguez Hills will be implementing staggered furlough days in most months. What this means is that the campus will remain open as only half of the faculty and staff will be absent on any given furlough day. Please see the library website for a full list of our August hours.

A calendar of furlough days (subject to finalization from the President's office) follows:

August 2009: Campus closed on Friday August 14th and Friday August 21st

September 2009: Half of employees gone on Friday September 4th, Tuesday September 8th, Friday September 18th and Monday September 21st.

October 2009: Half of employees gone on Friday October 2nd, Monday October 5th, Friday October 16th and Monday October 19th.

November 2009: Half of employees gone on Friday November 6th and Monday November 9th, Campus closed on Friday November 27th.

December 2009: Half of employees gone on Friday December 4th and Monday December 7th, Campus closed on Thursday December 24th.
