Current Status of Library Hours (updated March 24, 2020):

We regret to announce that effective Wednesday, March 25 and until further notice, the Cushwa-Leighton Library will be closed.

We are offering most of our services online.  Please see our Research Help page for a variety of ways to contact a librarian, as well as current updates on the status of our services.  Librarians are on call to answer questions and provide research help Monday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. EDT.  Outside of those hours, use our Research Help form and a librarian will respond as soon as possible.

When we are able to re-open our building, we will communicate that with the campus community.
