A Message From The Library Dean: Home



October 20, 2020

Dear Students,

In light of the latest email from our Covid Task Force, I would like to inform you of the updated safety protocols for Steelman Library:

  1. The university is limiting social gatherings, this applies to study groups.  We can no longer allow students to sit together in the library.  Study groups can be continued via a virtual platform.

  2. All student services have moved to a virtual platform.  The library has several avenues for students to receive reference help.  Our main way is for students to use Ask A Librarian found on our website.  Another way is to set up a virtual reference session with one of our librarians.  The contact information for librarians can be found here

  3. Mask wearing and social distancing will continue to be required.  

  4. Steelman Library employees will continue to keep surfaces clean.
