Due to health and safety considerations the library has made several changes for the fall semester. Below are details of what will be different. If you have questions please ask us!
All users are required to wear a mask while in the library and maintain a minimum of 1.5 meter distance from each other including inside the café. Before entering the library you should sanitize your hands using the antiseptic gel provided at the entrance.
Due to social distancing requirements, we have made the following changes:
The Library Café will be open with limited seating. Use of the vending machines will be allowed but no eating or drinking is allowed for health and safety reasons and due to the required use of a face mask in all areas in the library.
Yes you can but you must use the disinfecting wipes provided to clean the keyboard and mouse before each use.
Not for group work. Group study rooms are only be available for use by one person at a time. In addition, priority is given to faculty who need to teach courses online. For this reason we have removed the group study rooms from the online booking system. If you need to book a group study room please contact us.

All books returned to the library will be placed under a 72-hour quarantine to minimize possible spread of the virus. For this reason, delivery of material may be delayed. Please keep this in mind as you plan for your courses this semester.
