The San José campus will be closed Saturday, March 30 for Easter. No classes are scheduled that day. The campus will reopen at 9:30 a.m. Monday, April 1.
No classes are scheduled this Saturday, March 16, so the San José campus will be closed.
Many students and faculty at the USF-San José campus have done a double-take over the past few weeks as they spotted a familiar face in the library they hadn’t seen for a while.
Cynthia McCarthy, library assistant in the San José campus library from late 2011 to mid-2012, returned this semester as librarian. Cynthia reluctantly left USF in August when her other post, a technical position at Stanford University, changed to full-time. USF library managers made Cynthia an offer to return as librarian and she gleefully accepted.
“As much as I learned during my ‘semester abroad,’ I’m thrilled to be back with my old co-workers and to be working with USF’s instructors and students,” Cynthia said. Cynthia shares librarian duties in the San José campus library with Keisa Williams.
Gleeson Library|Geschke Center is pleased to announce a new service for USF Faculty: Document Delivery. As you may know, Gleeson has been delivering library books to Faculty for a few years. Now, Faculty can request electronic delivery of journal articles, book chapters, microfilm, and government documents from the library’s print or digital collections.
Going forward, the library will make every effort to fill all requests, whether we have the material in a bound volume, in a database we subscribe to, or in almost any other form. Faculty can make Document Delivery requests easily through ILLiad. Gleeson has used ILLiad for years to deliver journal articles and other material requested from other libraries. We’ve enhanced ILLiad to facilitate the request and delivery of material that we have here.
Questions? Feel free to contact us. We hope you find this new service useful!
Effective immediately the Library will begin circulating the books in our Reference collection. We came to this decision because, in recent years, the Reference process has become more centered on online resources. Further, we believe our patrons may derive a greater benefit from the print Reference collection if they were allowed to take the material out of the library.
For faculty who wish to direct an entire class to use particular Reference titles, we recommend that you request that the titles in question be placed on reserve for your class so that the items remain accessible to all of your students. If you have questions, please let us know.

At 11am this morning, USFs primary data center experienced a major power system failure that impacted primary and back-up power sources. At 11:50am, Facilities succeeded in bypassing the failed system. USFConnect single sign on access to Email, Blackboard and Banner were delayed for a short period after power was restored. ITS has now fully restored all services. We regret any inconvenience caused by this outage.
Please contact ITS Help Desk at email@example.com or (415) 422-6668 if you have any questions or require additional assistance.
