  Updated Library Hours

While we love assisting you remotely, we opened our doors on July 6th! Our hours will be Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. To be completely honest, we've missed assisting you in-person! If you're remaining remote, please check out the "Remote Services" tab to see how we'll continue to support your educational needs.

Here are a few things to know before coming back into the library:

  • Enter the library on the library's eastside. The south doors will be exit only.
  • We have transformed the physical space to promote social distancing.
  • Check out the "Changes to Services" tab for changes you should be aware of.
  • Please assist us in providing a safe place to study by:
    • practicing social distancing by remaining 6 feet apart,
    • and wearing a mandatory protective face covering, as University policy requires masks be worn in campus buildings, unless a health-related exception exists. If you do not have a mask, you will be given one at the library service desk inside the front doors.
