TLU Library and COVID-19: Resources and Services

Information about library resources and services during the COVID-19 pandemic

TLU Library and COVID-19

  • In Fall 2021, TLU is returning to an increased population density on campus with the vast majority of classes offered in-person.
  • The library will be open more hours than it was last year, although the hours are still reduced compared to typical years.
  • The library will follow campus-wide guidelines for masking, social distancing, and event capacity.
  • The library is open to non-TLU patrons, unless the campus-wide guidelines are changed to prohibit visitors.
  • Patrons are welcome to use all floors of the library, check out materials, and use the computers, printers, and poster printers. 
  • Special resources during COVID-19 – The resources at this page are provided by publishers and vendors to support research, teaching, and public health during the pandemic.
  • Additional information about current library policies may be found on the Library Policies page
