Library Access

The library is revising some of our safety protocols in light of recent CDC guidelines and WSU policy. Masks are still strongly encouraged for unvaccinated people. We are still providing socially distanced study and testing spaces to keep our unvaccinated patrons and staff as safe as possible. Please be respectful and supportive of your fellow Wildcats during this time.

We are gradually expanding services and opening study spaces in the library, while also maintaining continuity for students enrolled in the first summer session. We are also offering additional walk-in service at the Circulation Desk. Staff are available to answer questions and help with materials requests.

Our goal is to gradually add study spaces and re-open to greater capacity, including re-opening the book stacks, by June 25. Thank you for your patience as we work through the process of moving hundreds of chairs, desks, and study carrels. Please check this page for changing services and progress.

Current service additions include:

  • Same day pickup for materials requests.
  • Borrowing of print material through Interlibrary Loan.
  • Additional study space on the 1st floor.
  • Materials deliveries to department offices for faculty and staff.
  • Unlimited reservations for study spaces. There is no longer a time limit. You can reserve a space in advance to guarantee your spot, or you can walk into the library and check in for any available space. We still need to do contact tracing, so be sure to use the reservation system to keep your fellow Wildcats safe.
  • Curbside pick up will still be available, because we know many of you really like this service.

Goals for the second summer session (June 25):

  • Re-open the book stacks. We might not have all the furniture moved out, but we hope to offer browsing in the stacks once again.
  • Davis Library book stacks tentatively open June 25th.
  • Some third floor study spaces.
  • Some group study rooms re-opened. Some rooms will remain available for Proctorio tests.
  • Curbside pick up will still be available, because we know many of you really like this service.
  • 3-D printing re-opened.
  • Mobile printing available.
  • Checkout access of Course Reserves.
