COVID-19 Service Updates

Everything you need to know about Library services during the COVID-19 response.

As of right now, we're open to Oxy students, staff and faculty only and an Oxy ID is needed to enter the building. We ask that you wear a mask at all times and refrain from eating or drinking while in the building. For more information about campus-wide policies (including masks), please visit the Back to Oxy website.

Notice to students regarding masks:

Noncompliance will result in Library staff members pursuing this 3-part process:

  1. The individual(s) will be reminded of the policy and asked to wear their mask at all times in the building
  2. The individual will be informed that continuing noncompliance will lead to the student being reported to Student Affairs for a conduct infraction
  3. The individual will be asked for their ID and reported to Student Affairs

The 3-part process will counter noncompliance taking place during one day or over multiple days.
