We missed you! The Thompson Library is pleased to be back open, with the following modifications:
Before coming to campus, all students, faculty, and staff must complete the health screen. Entrance to the Library is through the 2nd floor skywalk from UPAV or the 3rd floor skywalk from French Hall. There will be no access through the brass doors on the first floor.
These plans are subject to change. Please check this page for ongoing updates.
Fall Semester Hours (begins August 31)
Sunday 12 pm – 8 pm
Monday – Thursday 8 am – 9 pm
Friday 8 am – 6 pm
*Special hours for high risk patrons
Monday and Thursday 8am – 10am
*New* Curbside Pickup
Once you have submitted your request, circulation staff will email you when your items are available for pick up with instructions on how to pick them up.
Curbside pick up is available from 1 - 5pm Monday - Friday in the Thompson Library's loading dock off of Harrison Street, opposite of the University Pavilion parking ramp's entrance.
If you need help locating items through the Library Catalog, please contact a reference librarian.
*New* Study rooms, computer stations, and individual seats must be reserved before use. This can be done from anywhere, up to 3 weeks in advance or upon arrival in the library. You can easily check in and out of the space from your smartphone using the QR code found on each seat. This new system allows us to ensure social distancing and safe capacity in the library, as well as assist in any contact tracing efforts.
Study room capacity is limited to 1-2 people. Study rooms must be reserved in advance.
ITS lab computers are available on all 3 floors of the library. Computers must be reserved before use.
Seating capacity in the library has been reduced to allow for social distancing. Because the furniture is carefully spaced to accommodate social distancing, please do not move furniture during your visit.
Whiteboards and markers are still available for students to use. Please ask for markers at the circulation desk and when you are done, return them for sanitizing.
