COVID-19 and DU Libraries

We are excited to welcome you back to campus! The librarians and staff at DU Libraries are hard at work doing everything we can to ensure a safe and healthy experience for all. The Fall 2020 quarter will look a little different.

The Anderson Academic Commons is open but has restricted hours and access. Please see our hours page for more details. Only DU students, faculty, and staff who have been cleared to return to campus may enter the building. Each person must swipe their DU ID to enter and follow all campus COVID-19 protocols, including wearing a mask, social distancing, and frequent hand washing.

Visitor and alumni access is not allowed at this time.

All other University Libraries locations remain closed. Contact the Research Center for questions.
