June 2021 Library Services Update

The Libraries are adjusting operations and services in response to campus updates and in preparation of our fall service model.

Health and safety requirements have been updated to align with campus policies.

  • Face coverings are no longer required for fully vaccinated people within library locations. Unvaccinated people should continue to wear face coverings indoors.
  • Individuals are welcome to continue wearing face coverings. Individual masking choices should not be interpreted as an indicator of vaccinated/unvaccinated status.
  • Eating and drinking is again allowed in most library spaces that permitted food and drink pre-COVID.
  • The indoor physical distancing requirement continues to be 6 feet.

Library by Appointment

Access to locations

  • Community access to physical spaces will be announced later this month.
  • Building capacity, room capacity, and number of seats will gradually increase but campus physical distancing rules continues to be 6 feet.

Access to collections

  • Library stacks are open and do not require an appointment.
  • Hold shelves have reopened at several locations. In response to positive patron feedback, Pickup by Appointment continues to be an option at Memorial and Steenbock for the foreseeable future.

If you have questions about these changes, please contact our Ask a Librarian service.
