Fordham Forward Libraries: Update on Services

Fordham Forward Libraries

Update on Services: Fall 2021

Welcome back for the Fall 2021 semester. Fordham Forward Libraries will provide links to library services for the entire Fordham community.

Our goal is to provide you with the resources you’ll need for your academic success, while at the same time safeguarding your health and safety in the unique library environment. The University libraries will adhere to University protocols with respect to prevention and screening measures. 

When you come in…

We want to keep library users and library staff as safe and healthy as possible. 

Speaking of library staff, we're here and on campus. We will also continue to provide you with the 24/7 online services we've been offering you all along.

Fall 2021 Information

 

Masks are required

Face masks must remain on when you are in any of the Fordham University libraries. All users must comply with University mask requirements, which are subject to change as Covid precautions shift. Violators may be asked to leave the library.

Food and Drink

No food will be permitted in the library. Please eat snacks or food items in a designated dining area on campus or outdoors. Beverages in covered containers are permitted, as long as you remove your mask only while drinking. Water bottle refill stations have been installed to replace some of the deactivated water fountains.

Furniture

The libraries have returned to full capacity. However, if the University's distancing requirements change due to Covid, library capacity will be affected and the spacing of tables, study carrels, PCs, and seating may vary.

Technology

Library PCs are back in place but we encourage you to please bring your own laptop, jump drive, and any other technology that you plan to use, rather than using shared public equipment.

Group Study Rooms

Group study rooms in Walsh and Quinn are available in the Fall 2021 semester.

Alumni

Welcome back! As of September 13, 2021 Fordham alumni are permitted to use the Fordham libraries provided they have a valid University Ram Pass and proof of vaccination.

Visitors

Visitors will not be permitted in the libraries for the Fall 2021 semester.
