Change in Admittance Procedures for All Rutgers Libraries

Effective March 17, 2020, admittance to all Rutgers University Libraries will be limited only to users with current Rutgers IDs.

While this decision was not made lightly, the Libraries have an important responsibility to ensure that our students, staff, and faculty have healthy environments in which to learn and to work. As popular gathering spaces in our local communities, the Libraries must take into consideration the guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the State of New Jersey, and Rutgers University to help prevent the transmission of COVID-19. This includes adopting best practices for social distancing and limiting the amount of people who can occupy their physical locations at any given time.
