Marriott Library remains open

UPDATE: March 16, 2020
The entrance on the west side of the Marriott Library is the only entrance open.

The U’s libraries will move to reduced hours starting March 15. Until further notice, they will be open from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and closed on the weekends. Only one entrance to each library will be open, and faculty, staff and students will need to hold up an ID for building entrance. Some library services may be limited or unavailable. Please also recognize that these hours and library services may be reduced even more substantially or the libraries may even be closed as things continue to evolve exceedingly quickly.
  • Off-campus access to databases, e-journals and e-books can be accessed by connecting to a proxy. Instructions on how to use that are found here.
  • Starting Monday, March 16, students will be able to check out laptops, hotspots and other equipment from the Marriott Library Knowledge Commons for seven days, with the option to renew once online.
  • Live chat services will be up and running on Monday and Tuesday, March 16 and 17: 8 a.m.-9 p.m.
  • Home delivery: For students, staff and faculty, the Pull and Delivery Service has been expanded to provide book delivery to home or office locations through the mail. Returns can be made using a pre-paid system provided in the delivery box and is free. To request a delivery, use this form.
  • Expanding Reserve Services for faculty: Reserve at the library would like to assist faculty in formulating online courses. The library can create lists of online readings for students and can order ebooks if they are available. If a faculty member has a textbook and needs a chapter scanned from time to time, the library would be happy to scan it for you. To adhere to copyright guidelines, we can scan one chapter from a given book for Ereserve. In order to process items as quickly and efficiently as possible, all requests must be submitted through our online form. Please direct your requests to Course Reserve Request.
