Boatwright Library Reopening Information

We are facing a challenging situation in which all of us are called on to make a good faith effort to be flexible and to make decisions in the best interest of the community, including staying home when sick. Persons who are sick should not come to the libraries. If you are ill and require research assistance, please contact us via the library’s chat service, text, email, or by appointment (via Zoom) and we will make every effort to deliver resources to you.

Due to physical distancing guidelines and the loss of group study rooms due to summer classroom, TLC and Faculty HUB construction, space to accommodate students wishing to take online classes in Boatwright Library is limited. Seats are available in the library’s Collaborative Areas on a first come first serve basis. Use of headphones is encouraged. Study rooms will be available by reservation only to accommodate demand.
