BERKELEY -- Protesters occupying the UC Berkeley's anthropology library on campus claimed victory Saturday night when university administrators signed an agreement meeting the protesters' demands for a fully restored library schedule.

UC Berkeley's Tom Leonard put his signature on the agreement about 7:30 p.m., according to an email from Ronald Cruz, an attorney for By Any Means Necessary, a coalition that defends affirmative action and immigration.

Under the agreement, the library will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays and 1 to 6 p.m. on weekends, the same hours that were kept in the Fall 2011 semester.

As part of the agreement, administrators also will hire a full-time librarian to keep up with the demands.
