*Due to COVID-19 and social distancing, all loans from the Gordon Library are extended to August 31, 2020 and fees and fines that accrued starting March 20, 2020 will be forgiven. Please email, with any questions regarding your library account. 

Library Schedule

Due to COVID-19-related changes in D-Term schedules and library staffing, the library will operate under the following schedule until further notice:

  • From March 16-20 we will be open 9am to 4pm 

  • The Gordon Library building will close at 4 pm March 20, but most services will be continued online.

Future changes to library hours and operations will be announced on the Library’s home page and on the Library hours page as the situation evolves. 

Tech Suites will not be available for meetings during this period in order to better align with CDC guidance on social distancing. The Gordon Conference Room is still available for scheduled meetings during library open hours. All library meeting and office spaces are being frequently and thoroughly cleaned by partners in Campus Facilities. 

Important Contact Information

Although the library building will only be open from 9-4, library staff will be available remotely by phone, Live Chat, Zoom, or Skype, to assist faculty and students between approximately 8am and 5pm Monday through Friday.
