Library Updates in Response to COVID-19

Library Hours & Restrictions

Please see our library hours page to see the most recent changes in hours. We will be closed for both weeks of spring break, although faculty can contact their librarian liaison to request access. Hours will be reduced for spring term and restricted to SOU students, faculty, and staff.

Social Distancing

Please maintain 6 feet from others while at the library. This includes both library staff and patrons. This will help us maintain a safe space that is in compliance with guidelines from the governor. Thank you for your cooperation.

Access to Library Resources

Many of our resources are already available online. Please consult our Library Resources for Distance Students guide for more information. Some new resources will be available online that weren't in the past. If you are having trouble finding what you need, contact the librarian most closely associated with your topic areaPLEASE NOTE: Summit borrowing is not possible at this time.   

Research Questions

During Research Services hours, our chat service will continue to be available. Please feel free to use our Ask a Librarian service at other hours. If you have a specific research question, try looking for the Research Guide most appropriate to your topic and contact that librarian. 

Library Instruction & Resources

Faculty who want library instruction or want to talk about research resources for their spring classes should contact their liaison librarian to discuss options.
