FALL 2020 Library Policies


  • The library building will be open for study purposes only.
  • Please check below for current hours as they may change without notice.
  • As is standard with Mercyhurst University policy, wearing a face mask covering your nose and mouth is required in the Library.
  • Seating has been adjusted for appropriate social distancing.
  • Hand sanitizer is available at stations throughout the Library as well as canisters of disinfecting wipes. We ask that before leaving the library you wipe down the area you were occupying.
  • While staff may be available at the Circulation Desk, to assist you, they must stay behind the Circulation Desk and the Sneeze Guards.
  • You can seek immediate assistance chatting with a staff member in our live chat, or by clicking here and submitting your question
  • To assist with the mitigation of the spread of COVID 19, access to the library stacks is not available for browsing in person. You may instead ask request books or other materials held in the library by placing them on hold in our library catalog or completing the Library Service request form. Think of this like an online order pickup at grocery stores. Click here to learn how to place library materials on hold and where to pick them up.
