Fall 2020 Library Services and Access Guide

Face coverings & Sanitization Supplies

Please note that face coverings will be required for the entirety of your visit. If you need to eat/drink, we ask you do so outside to avoid having to take your covering off in the building.  If you forget your face covering, the library can assist in providing a temporary one for your visit. Please request one at the main service desk.

Each floor has also been equipped with a sanitization station, which includes hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes for your use. Please be sure to wipe down your work area before and after use with the wipes. Should you notice supplies running low, please alert library staff. 

Tables/Seating

In order to accommodate social distancing guidelines, the amount of available tables and chairs have been reduced and spaced accordingly. For your safety, we kindly ask that you leave the current furniture configurations as is, including the number of chairs at a table.

Study Rooms

Individual study rooms will remain unavailable until further notice as we have had to repurpose many of these spaces for other needs.

Study Carrels

To begin the semester, study carrels located around the stacks on the second and third floors will be unavailable for use.

Reference, Gov Docs, Periodicals

The following sections, along with the surrounding carrels,  will be closed to users:

  • Reference section (main floor)
  • Government Document section (main floor)
  • Bound Periodical stacks (basement) 

Users will be able to request items from all three collections.

 

Lockers

Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer our locker service at the present time. Please plan accordingly.

Signage

A variety of directional and safety signage has been placed in the building to help with social distancing and provide other important information (e.g. bathroom use, elevators, etc.).

Please take time to read these and don’t hesitate to ask staff if you have questions.

White Boards

Mini whiteboards will not be available for use/lending.

Laptops and Chargers

Some laptops, chargers, and other electronic equipment will not be available for short-term lending. Please use the equipment request form if you are in need of one of these items.
