Library Services During the COVID-19 Pandemic

View section navigation menu Section menu

Hiebert Library is open limited hours at the present time:

  • Monday-Thursday 9am-4:45pm
  • Friday 9am-11:45am

Access to campus is limited to a gate on Hamilton Avenue behind the Steinert Campus Center. When entering that gate, Campus Safety personnel will require you to fill out a form verifying that you are symptom-free and are not aware of having been directly exposed to the virus.

While the library is open, we encourage users to consider whether they truly need to use resources in the building. All electronic resources (e-books, online journal subscriptions, and academic databases) remain fully functional during this time. This represents the vast majority of the library’s resources, so it is possible to perform most research tasks without actually entering building.

Books may still be checked out from the main library and the Mennonite Library. Requests for archival records, however, will not be filled at this time.

Link+ is again available, though not all member libraries are participating yet. ArticleReach and traditional inter-library loan services are still functioning, though also at a level somewhat lower than normal.

Computers and wifi access are available in the library.

If you must come to the library, please be sure to practice all recommended forms of social distancing.
