New Library System

On July 13, 2021, we upgraded our core library platform to the Alma and Primo VE library systems. There is an improved OneSearch, mobile responsiveness, saved searches, and a better user experience.

Summer B Space Reopening

We have some exciting changes coming to our space at the start of Summer B on Monday, June 28th! As part of our gradual reopening, we’ve moved our furniture back to its original configuration. We’re also reopening our 3rd floor, and visitors will be able to use our central staircase to move between the floors of the library once again.

Keeping you safe

Due to the ongoing concerns regarding COVID-19, and for the purpose of protecting the health of our users as well as our staff and faculty, the physical Health Science Center Library will offer limited in-person services until further notice. The virtual library is 100% open and available, and library faculty and staff are here to help.
