COVID-19 Protocol for Library and Archives 
Updated July 24, 2020. 

To protect all the different communities of which the library is part, we will be limiting how the library team and our resources interact with the physical world. Currently, all physical access to the library and archives is closed to the public. However, we are now able to circulate both Wiggin Library and I-Share print books through the mail as we did prior to COVID-19. The only difference will be that, due quarantining books for your safety and reduced onsite library staffing for our safety, it will take on average 3 to 7 days longer to receive books in the mail.  

In addition, all digital resources remain accessible online, and the library team is still here to answer any questions you have. Email us at if you have any questions or need anything you think the library can provide.


Wiggin Library: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday: 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, or by appointment*

Special Collections Reading Room: Monday to Friday: 9:00 am to 5:00 pm (except holidays and other days when the office is closed), by appointment

*Hours expand when students are on campus for Ingathering and Intensives. Please check the academic calendar for the dates and contact a librarian for specific open hours during these times. To make an appointment, contact a librarian.
