UC Libraries Closing at 5pm, Monday, March 16 until Further Notice

In consultation with university administration, and with the knowledge that diligent social distancing is critical in slowing and stopping the spread of COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to close all UC Libraries locations effective 5pm, Monday, March 16 until further notice. The only exception to this will be the Donald C. Harrison Health […]


Effective 5pm, Monday, March 16 all UC Libraries locations will close until further notice.

UC Classicists: While the physical library is closed, you will unfortunately not be able to check references in the printed collections. Therefore, you may want to use this time to read the many books you have checked out and do some thinking and writing, noting references on which to follow up after the library reopens. Also, know that there is a huge number of journals, books, ancient texts, editions, etc., available online. I can help you find these sources, assist with research questions, give advice on texts and editions, read drafts of papers and dissertations, and anything else with which you might need help. Contact: Rebecka Lindau
