As the University of Pennsylvania prepares for a full reopening in the fall, the Penn Libraries continues to expand on-site access for students, faculty, and staff.

See the FAQ below for details on the re-opening of the Libraries’ physical spaces, discontinuation of HathiTrust ETAS emergency access, updates on course reserves, and more.

We also continue to offer convenient remote access: please see our Virtual Support page for information on accessing digital content, collaborating with research partners, and directly consulting with librarians.

Please note that computing services, printers, and study spaces are reopening gradually as we update systems and navigate a full staff return. We appreciate your patience and flexibility at this time.

Important Note: At every point the safety of our staff and our users is our top priority. All services are subject to change; revisions will be made as necessary with guidance from the University of Pennsylvania, city and state officials, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
