Just in time for shopping period, the Center for Science and Social Science Information opened its doors on Tuesday.

As the new collaborative home of the science library, social science library and StatLab, CSSSI is housed in the basement of Kline Biology Tower and contains a 24 hour study-space.

If you’re a fan of the Law Library willing to hike up Science Hill, you have extra reason to check out CSSSI — according to a Tuesday email to Law School students, Yale law librarian Fred Shapiro announced that access to the Law Library will be restricted from Jan. 4 to Jan. 18, the Law School’s reading and exam period.

Only Law School affiliates, University faculty and Law Library pass holders will be allowed access during this period. Passes are distributed to non-law students who are conducting legal research and who can present a letter from a faculty member or college dean.

Per student request, the Law Library will also extend its hours during this period, closing at 2 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and 12 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
