Important reminders for those coming to campus to use a library:

To support the university's safety protocols that minimize physical campus use, we are encouraging the Wayne State community to continue to use our remote services but we will offer limited physical access, particularly for those who need to access technology to complete their virtual classes and coursework.

Based on our work with facilities, all buildings will offer reduced capacities and will be minimally staffed, providing limited onsite services including computer use, individual study space, material pickup paged from the collections and, when necessary, battery checkout for personal devices. University libraries and computer labs will implement new processes for cleaning of spaces and equipment, as well as new guidelines to facilitate social distancing.

The libraries are accepting returns of library materials. More info: How to return library, ILL, and MeLCat items

More information on the hours and operations is available at the libraries' website.

Please contact the School of Information Sciences if you have questions or need assistance at asksis@wayne.edu or 313-577-1825.
