COVID-19 Precautions

Safety Precautions

  • The library has an occupancy limit of 70 people, and up to 15 people at a time may use the computer lab.
  • You must wear a mask while you're in the library, except if you're in a private office or study room.
  • Only one person is allowed to sit at each study table.
  • One person or family group is allowed to use each study room at a time. Reservations may be made online.
  • Doctoral students will be assigned shelves instead of carrels this year; carrels are available for use on a first-come, first served basis.
  • Due to social distancing requirements, certain study tables and carrels are marked as unavailable for use. Please observe the posted signs.
  • Food is only permitted in the front cafe area. We are not selling food from our "Public Domain" cafe area, but limited options are available in the vending machines. 
  • The refrigerator, microwaves, and Keurig machine are unavailable for use. K-Cups will not be sold this year.
  • The children's room is closed to the public. One adult at a time may gain access to the children's book collection and/or lactation room by asking at the checkout desk.
  • We highly recommend that you use the available cleaning supplies to sterilize your chosen study area before and after you use it. Staff members will also periodically make rounds to clean surfaces in the library.
  • All course reserves will be provided electronically this year. No physical reserves will be available for checkout.
