As the semester draws to a close and the transition to the next begins, I write to share information about the ways the UVM Libraries are here to support you.

To comply with university-wide health directives, the Libraries will provide limited, in-person access to our facilities in December and January. As always, we encourage you to take advantage of our expanded remote services, our popular curbside program, and our willingness to mail physical materials to you, as needed.

Please note that access for students will be limited to students who have been sponsored by their Dean, or are in other approved categories. For details on student sponsorship, see the December 2020 and January 2021 Operations website for more details on student sponsorship.
