The Dana Biomedical Library is reopening Tuesday, October 6.
The hours are 8:30am-5pm. There is no after-hours access at this time. Access is limited to faculty, staff, and Geisel graduate students.
Due to physical distancing requirements, study rooms have been transformed into regular study space, and therefore are not available for group study.
Also, we have limited capacity for this space. Library staff will constantly monitor the number of people in the library, and if necessary, we may need to limit access to the library. To help manage traffic and access, we are establishing a library entrance only at the Maynard Lot side of the 37 Dewey Field building and an exit only at the Dewey Lot side to the building. If you need to use the elevator, you may enter at the Dewey Lot side of the building and proceed to the Library Information Desk so staff may count you for capacity.
In order to proceed safely, we ask that all library users follow these guidelines, including:
- Completing the Temperature Self Assessment before coming to campus
- Wearing of face coverings while on campus and inside the Library
- Adhering to physical distancing guidelines
- Following signage and staff directions
- Food and beverages, with the exception of a water bottle, are not allowed inside the library
We will continue to monitor the status of the pandemic closely so that we can adapt, change or halt our in-person services and access to library spaces as necessary.
We are excited to welcome you back to the Dana Library!
