The UW Music Library joins other libraries on the University of Washington campus in closing until further notice, pending university guidance.
To aggressively support the State’s recommendation to flatten the curve of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, all UW Libraries locations have closed until further notice.
Music, Art, and Drama Library Head Erin Conor announced the closure in a March 20 note to School of Music faculty and staff. "While our physical operations have temporarily ceased,” she wrote, "we remain available to help students and faculty access online resources and support 24/7."
Library patrons should note the following:
- Returning items: all book returns are currently closed. Please keep all items until the UW Libraries reopen.
- Fines: fines accrued during this time will be reviewed and adjusted upon reopening.
- Due dates: will be extended when possible while services are limited.
- Requesting physical items: at this time, and until further notice, the Music Library will not have access to any of the physical collection, including journals, books, and media, and will not be able to fulfill requests for these materials. Therefore the following services are unavailable: Request a UW item for pick up, Summit, UW Article Scanning Services, Course Instruction Scanning, Print Course Reserves, Home Delivery, and Department Delivery. Interlibrary Loan services will be limited to electronic articles and materials only.
