Limited access

Due to health concerns the library is limiting access to university employees and students. You may be asked to show your BYU I.D. when entering the library.

Reduced hours

The library is operating with reduced hours, 7:45 am to 8:00 pm, Monday through Saturday.

Moving to virtual services

Although our doors will remain open, we are closing all face-to-face service points to limit risks to both patrons and staff. This includes all our Help Desks. Most of our books can still be checked out using self-checkout machines. Library Security will continue to monitor the building.

Faculty Delivery Service temporarily suspended

Due to the number of department offices that have closed, the library is putting their Faculty Delivery Service on hold until further notice. Faculty can still use the online system to request books and then pick them up at the level 3 Help Desk in the library.

Some areas are closed

Family Friendly Study Room and Education in Zion, along with many rooms and areas where groups tend to gather, will be closed until further notice.
