The Chapin Library (together with Williams College Archives & Special Collections) is open 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, unless otherwise stated on this page. We are closed nights and weekends except for special events as announced. Another view of our hours, in monthly calendar form, may be seen on this page.
The Chapin Library and College Archives will close after December 20, 2013 to prepare for our move from temporary quarters to the new Stetson Hall-Sawyer Library. We encourage faculty, students, and visiting scholars to plan ahead for research, and for the possibilities of class use during the 2014/15 academic year.
After December 20th, services will not be available until the opening of the new library in Fall Term 2014. Staff will not be able to answer research questions or provide access to materials, due to the complexity of the move.
The Chapin Library will operate as usual during the Fall 2013 semester. Do plan accordingly, however, to ensure that use of our collections is completed by the end of December.
