Library Operations during the Coronavirus

The library is taking a few precautions to slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect our students' health.

  • Masks must be worn everywhere on campus, including in the library. If you do not have a mask, the library will provide you with a disposable mask.
  • Hand sanitizer is available at multiple locations throughout the library. Students are encouraged to use them upon entry and exit, as well as periodically during their time in the library.
  • Upon being returned to the library all books and materials are placed into a quarantine bin for three days (the time that the COVID-19 virus can survive on hard surfaces) before being re-shelved into the collection.
  • Some computers have been disabled to promote social distancing. Please do not gather in a group around a single computer.
