Winter Break: All Library Buildings Closed

The major changes will be to concentrate reservable seats for individual study at the Sciences Library starting on December 12, following the end of the remote exam period for undergraduates. This is in service of safely increasing staff activity in other buildings to prepare reserves and other course materials for the Spring term. Pickup circulation will continue in the Rock lobby through December 20, and graduate students will continue to have access to the Wernig Graduate Student Reading Room and their assigned carrels during the same period.

Information about reserving seats, ordering materials, and all other core Library services is available here.

The Library staff sincerely appreciate all the expressions of support and encouragement we have received from students, faculty, and staff over the Fall term. Your patience, partnership, and good will have enabled us to carry out our most essential functions to sustain Brown’s academic mission in the safest possible manner.

With best wishes for the remainder of the term, the holidays, and a restful Winter Break.
