COVID-19: Phased Library Service Availability


Posted on

Last updated: Tuesday, July 7, 2020

The Penn Libraries has launched a number of essential services to re-connect Penn faculty, students and staff with our physical collections. See the FAQ below for details.

We also continue to develop and enhance services to support remote teaching, research, and learning. Please see our Virtual Support page for information on accessing digital content, collaborating with research partners, and directly consulting with librarians.

Important Note: At every point the safety of our staff and our users is our top priority. At this time all Penn Libraries buildings will remain closed, in-person events are cancelled, and access to library facilities will be limited to a small number of library staff. Further revisions to services will be made with guidance from the University of Pennsylvania, city and state officials, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
