Keeping You Healthy

Like the rest of campus, we're working hard to keep you safe and healthy! 

The library is cleaned daily and sanitized nightly, thanks to the efforts of our Fisher housekeeping staff. 

Hand sanitizer stations and cleaning materials for wiping your seating area are available. 

Feeling under the weather? You may check your temperature at the temperature scanner on the main level. 

Library materials are quarantined for five full days upon return, based on the OCLC/Battelle REALM study.  As an extra precaution, we also strongly encourage you to wash your hands before and after using library materials.
