What to Expect When You Visit

In order to protect both library staff and visitors to the library, there are several new policies in place:

  • Fully vaccinated individuals are no longer required to wear a mask on campus but may choose to do so if they wish.  Those who are not fully vaccinated are asked to still wear a mask. 
  • Group study rooms have been converted to "Rooms to Zoom" and are reserved for ONE student to connect to a class using the college internet.  These rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis and cannot be reserved ahead of time.  Laptops are available for use in the library.  

We have also put several new procedures in place to mitigate possible exposure to COVID-19:

  • Regular cleaning procedures have always been in place, but we have increased their frequency.
  • Equipment borrowed at the front desk will be disinfected after each use.  The only exception is our Anatomy & Physiology models because the cleaning solution will damage the models.  It is recommended students wash their hands both before and after using these materials.
  • Library furniture has been rearranged to encourage social distancing; we ask that you do not move the furniture.  Please stay 6 ft apart from other people the library.
