The IU Libraries' buildings open this spring are offering reserved seating for studying. Some services are appointment only, and many operations are modified to continue services offered in Fall 2020. The William & Gayle Cook Music Library will continue to operate on a slightly different appointment-based system. The Lilly Library remains closed for its once-in-a-generation renovation.
- IU affiliates can make unlimited tabletop or workstation reservations for library study spaces. Tabletop seats and workstations can be reserved in increments of 1-6 hours. Students will only be able to reserve a study room once per day. The max amount of time a student can use a study room is 3 hours. (1 three-hour reservation per day).
- The Business/SPEA Library will be open more hours this semester. Please note that the Hodge building doors may be locked at times the Business/SPEA Library is open, but we are still here. Check the Business/SPEA Library webpage for tips on access.
- The Graduate Study Space at the Herman B Wells Library is a ten-person room filled with tabletops located on the first floor of Wells Library. This space is for graduate students only and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. This is the only space at the Wells Library where a reservation is not required. To secure a seat in the Graduate Study Space, a graduate student must first check-in and show their Crimson Card at the East Tower (Scholars' Commons) HOST station. The Graduate Study Space is intended for quiet, individual work; masks and physical distancing are required at all times.
- While you cannot eat or drink in most of the Wells Library this spring, the Bookmark[et] Eatery at Wells Library (operated by IU Dining) will reopen its dining room for limited eat-in service. Please keep all food and drink in this area. Physical distancing will be required and guests are expected to share the space with others by limiting their time in the dining rooms and placing items left from their meal in the appropriate bins. The tented area outside of the Library will be heated to allow for additional spaces for dining. There is no limit on the time guests may spend in these locations. Physical distancing is to be observed and masks worn when not eating. The heaters will be operating when the outside temperature is between 32–60 degrees.
