I write with an update on library services between now and the extended break.
Please note that between Thanksgiving and the Extended Break
Olin and Science buildings will close as of 12 noon on 11/25 for the Thanksgiving break.
Starting Monday, 11/30 through Friday, 12/11, Olin and Science will be open daily 12noon-5pm. Online services and in-building pickup continue as usual.
From Saturday, 12/12 to Thursday 12/23, Olin and Science buildings will be closed. Online services continue as usual.
If you are on campus, you can request books and other materials online and pick them up in the Olin vestibule beginning Monday, December 14th. Hours for pickup are 9-5pm, Monday-Friday except during holiday breaks.
If you are off-campus for the extended break, you can request books and other materials online and ask us to mail them your home address.
All loans (except for DVDs) have been extended until February 2021
I will be in touch regarding January building hours at a later point. Should changing campus conditions warrant any changes in hours or services, I will let you know. You can see the latest information on the Library Services During COVID web page: https://www.wesleyan.edu/libr/services.html
If you have time, I encourage you to attend “Before You Go” on Wednesday, November 18th 4:30-6:30pm in the Labyrinth Tent. Folks from the Writing Workshop, Presentation Studio, Library, Peer Advisors, Math Workshop, CAPS, and the Resource Center will be there to connect you with resources and advice to support finishing the semester and completing final exams, papers, and projects remotely and successfully. There will be snacks.
We in the library wish you the best on a successful conclusion to the semester. Have a restful and safe break and we look forward to seeing you again very soon, both on campus and online.
