COVID-19: Health and Safety Plan

Landman Library

Revised January 6, 2021

The Landman Library building will be open during the spring 2021 semester with reduced capacity to residential and commuter students that are approved for campus access for individual quiet study. Students and other approved faculty and staff will be able to reserve a seat ahead of time online through the library’s website beginning in January, with access to and within the library limited to allow for safe social distancing and time for routine cleaning. Several other health and safety precautions have been put in place, including rearranging furniture, distancing computer workstations, and closing access to the physical collection and other parts of the library. All patrons will be required to adhere to the requirements of the University Campus Compact, including wearing a mask at all times and wiping in and out as they come. 

All library services, including one-on-one research consultations and research and information literacy instruction, will remain fully virtual this semester. You can find more information regarding All-Modes teaching, learning, and research resources and services here. Library faculty remain fully accessible online to provide research and instructional support for students, faculty, and staff whether they are on campus or remote. If you have questions, need research support, or want to schedule research and information literacy instruction, contact reference@arcadia.edu or visit arcadia.edu/library.

With access to the print collection remaining closed to the public, the library will continue to offer online requesting of print materials, including print interlibrary loan, through our Books2Go service with pick up at Mail and Print. This is in addition to our online databases and resources, which are always available from on campus or away and include hundreds of thousands of ebooks, streaming films, academic journals, and more.
