Community Members

The library is closed to the public; only students, faculty and staff are able to access the building using their Warrior ID card. Each semester we will reevaluate this and other COVID decisions. Any resulting changes will be reflected on this guide.

You may still be able to access library electronic resources like our databases by connecting to the wifi on campus. If you need a book or physical item, you may be able to schedule curbside pickup when requesting the item. Direct any questions to the Front Desk by emailing

Thank you for keeping yourself and the campus community safe. We look forward to when we can welcome you back into the library.
