The Pace Libraries are available for independent study only. Library seating has been reduced by 50–75 percent to ensure six-foot social distancing mandates. The following measures are in place to protect public health:
- >> According to University policy, all users will wear face coverings at all times.
- >> All users will sanitize any areas used as a workspace before and after use.
- >> Furniture may not be moved for any reason in public spaces.
- >> Public computer availability has been heavily reduced and users must sanitize before and after each use.
- >> Group study spaces and sessions will NOT be allowed. The libraries are available for individual study only.
Once Pace Libraries reach capacity, entrance to the library will be temporarily closed until occupancy drops below the limit.
Users may visit their home campus library to borrow materials from the Pace collections during regular library hours. Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to request books in advance using the “Request” button within the Library Catalog, and pick up that item at the front desk.
Read more on the Library website regarding detailed instructions regarding book borrowing, requesting books, returning books, laptop policies, and more.
Reserves and Research Services
Circulation of print reserve books and textbooks will NOT be available in Fall 2020 due to the inability to safely handle and lend physical reserve materials with short turnaround time. Electronic reserves are still available and use is encouraged.
Research and Reference Services are still available virtually and F2F. Please use the Ask a Librarian button to access a group of options.
For the most complete and updated information, please be sure to visit the Library website. Note that policies, procedures, and hours are always subject to change.
