Updates: COVID-19 & Yale Library Online

COVID-19 Library Updates graphic

January 11 Sterling Memorial Library, including contactless pickup in the nave, is currently open to graduate students, professional students, and faculty (including emeriti), who are authorized to be on campus. Other library locations and special collections reading rooms will open to the same groups on Jan. 12.  See the Library Reopening FAQ for location-specific details.

At this time, in compliance with the University's COVID-19 guidelines, we are unable to  extend access to other patron groups, including retired staff and faculty without emeritus status, alumni, family members, other Yale affiliates, and general public. We regret any inconvenience, and we look forward to welcoming our extended community when public health conditions improve. Please contact Ask Yale Library if you have questions about your status to access the library.

Hours, including for contactless pickup, 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.
