McKee Library adjusts rules, increases cleaning to comply with health regulations


McKee library has adjusted its rules in order to comply with health regulations on

campus. Some of the regulations being enforced include frequent cleaning of surfaces, material rentals online, installation of plexiglass as well as reduced student capacity. The latter will only allow for 50 percent of each floor to be used, making it easier to comply with social distancing rules.

To help keep the library clean and disinfected there will be a half-hour increment

between room reservations to allow for cleaning. The library has also changed its operating hours and will now be closing at 11:00 P.M., though this decision was reached due to unrelated COVID-19 issues.

Although many of the superficial guidelines have changed, the library will still be offering the same services it has provided in the past. This means that services such as meetings with research coaches and Writing Center appointments will remain the same with the exception that face masks will be required.

“I’d like the students to know that we are here to help them no matter the circumstance,” said Library Director Deyse Bravo. “I’d like to encourage students to ask for help when they need it. We love helping students with research!”
