Covid-19 Library Update image
Divinity Library & Special Collections

The Yale Divinity Library, including the special collections reading room, is currently open to current Yale graduate and professional students, staff, and faculty (including emeriti) who are authorized to be on campus and in the Quad. To be admitted to the Yale Divinity Library, Yale students must first be admitted to the Yale Divinity Quadrangle.  Before seeking admission to the Quad, patrons should be in compliance with the Yale Community Compact.  See For admission to the Quad, Yale students should contact Kathy Antos, Yale Divinity School’s Health & Safety Leader ( She will reach out to Health & Safety leaders for confirmation of compliance. See the Library Reopening FAQ for location-specific details. In compliance with health and safety guidelines for reducing library occupancy, we are unable to extend access to other patron groups, including alumni and retired staff and faculty without emeritus status, until further notice. We regret any inconvenience, and we look forward to welcoming our extended community when public health conditions improve.

Hours, including for special collections appointments, may change on short notice due to COVID-19. Check library hours before coming to campus.  Library staff continue to provide research consultations, workshops, library instruction, and access to electronic resources online. Current students, faculty, and staff may request to have library materials, including BorrowDirect materials and interlibrary loans, scanned or mailed to U.S. addresses.

Please contact Ask Yale Library if you have questions about your status to access the library; or contact Kathy Antos to arrange access to the Quad.
