This Semester @ The Library

The Library will be open Monday through Friday from 8am to 8pm and Saturday from 9am to 3pm. 

We continue to encourage social distancing so there are fewer computers in the Library. The Center for Digital Access and Learning in Building 71 (6th Floor) provides additional access to computers. 

Anyone who visits in person MUST wear a mask covering their nose and mouth the entire time they are inside.
