Libraries Hours

The Libraries have temporarily suspended in-person service; expanded online resources and support are available.

Due to COVID-19, the Harrison Libraries building (Allen and Mortensen) is closed until further notice.
  • Online resources—Discover additional e-resources made available for online research.
  • Contact us—Library staff are working from home and can answer questions via chat, email, or video conference.
  • Interlibrary loan—It is still possible to request articles and book chapters.

Checked out materials:

  • Checked-out materials are due September 30, 2020.
  • We are waiving overdue fines.
  • Book drops are not available during the closings and no one is at the library to accept returns, so hold onto your library materials for now, even if you are graduating. You can return materials when sites re-open, or mail materials only after we indicate that you may do so.
