All Libraries buildings are closed until further notice with the exception of Hicks Undergraduate Library, which will remain open to Purdue students in need of computer and internet access Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 6 pm ONLY. This is subject to change per University protocol. No in-person library services will be provided and social distancing protocol will be strictly enforced. Visit our All Hours page for the most up-to-date in-person library hours.
We have temporarily suspended all circulation of print materials until further notice. Our Remote Access Resources Guide will help you locate alternative electronic resources.

Our ongoing focus will be on connecting faculty, staff, and students to electronic resources and assisting our patrons in an e-learning and telework environment. Librarians will be available for phone, email, or video chat consultations, and the hours for our virtual methods of assistance will be expanded. Though we are closing our physical doors, Purdue Libraries will continue to provide the highest level of service possible in a virtual environment.

Please refer to our Changes to Operations page for Libraries updates and the University’s COVID-19 site for the latest information on campus policy and protocol.
