    • Face masks or face coverings are required to enter our facility. In addition, we request that you practice physical distancing of six feet apart. Those unable to wear a mask can take advantage of our remote services

Library by Appointment requirement: Faculty and PIs whose research falls under the Research Reboot guidelines must complete or update the OVCRGE Research Reboot request form for themselves and on behalf of individuals for whom they have responsibility, whether as part of research teams (e.g. a lab group) or as independent researchers (e.g. a graduate advisee).
Graduate students: Before scheduling an appointment for on-site library access, your faculty advisor must first request permission for you to return to on-campus research and complete or update the Phase 2 Research Reboot request form. (See the procedure described in the Phase 2 Research Reboot request form FAQs.) After your advisor has completed or updated the request form, you can then schedule an appointment directly through the Library by Appointment procedure. Once you have received an appointment, this indicates that the Libraries have approved your library research request. Please inform your faculty advisor to return to the request form and change the status of the Research Reboot Proposal (question 6) to “approved.”
