In accordance with Purdue University’s decision to move all courses to an online model for the foreseeable future, Purdue Libraries has made changes to its operations in the interest of the health and safety of the campus community. News about the COVID-19 virus changes fast, and any updates to Libraries-specific operating procedures or policies will be noted here. Please refer to the University site for all information related to Purdue’s COVID-19 response.
Changes to Hours/ Services Moving Online
Beginning Friday, March 20, 2020 at 5 pm EST and continuing until the university deems it safe for campus life to resume as normal, all Libraries services and resources will be available online only. All Libraries buildings will be closed completely until further notice with the exception of Hicks Undergraduate Library, which will remain open to Purdue students Monday through Friday from 8 am to 6 pm as a study space ONLY. This is subject to change per University protocol. No in-person library services will be provided and social distancing protocol will be strictly enforced.
