Library Reopens on May 24th
As part of the SDSU Flex plan, the University Library begins its phased reopening to the public this summer. The second floor of the Library Addition is now open to current members of the SDSU community (student, staff, and faculty, including emeriti). Currently scheduled to be open from 9 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday, the library will provide access to study space, printing, standard and high-performance computers. Visitors will be required to follow campus guidelines promoting continuing public health, including mask-wearing, and other guidelines shared on the SDSU Flex website.
Please note: a facial covering is required to enter the University Library at all times, and must be worn at all times in library public spaces. Failure to wear a facial covering is a violation of the Library Code of Conduct. Eating will not be allowed in library public spaces during the summer. While drinking from approved containers will be allowed, it must comply with campus guidelines regarding the user of facial coverings. Please see the Policy on Food and Drink-Friendly Areas for additional information.
Plans for a fuller reopening of the University Library are still being made in conjunction with campus planning for Fall 2021. Please visit the library home page for updates later this summer.
All Library online services remain available throughout the summer, including access to digital collections, online research assistance, IT help, and remote access to licensed software. We continue to provide "Domeside Pickup" service of materials from our collections and technology equipment to support student learning in the online environment and now offer a convenient contactless pickup through our Book Lockers. Members of the SDSU community can use the Love Library Patio to connect to the campus wireless network. Short-term parking passes (30 minutes for $1) can be purchased at pay stations. We recommend parking at P12 Level 8 or P1 in the student parking.
