Watzek Library COVID-19 Information: Ongoing Response

Building Use

As part of Lewis & Clark's ongoing response to COVID-19, Watzek Library continues to implement campus-wide health and safety measures. Consistent with these, all persons regardless of vaccination status must wear a mask inside the public areas of Watzek Library. 

Alumni and members of the public are welcome to visit Watzek Library.

Borrowing Policies

Watzek Library's regular loan and renewal periods apply. Summit and Interlibrary Loan services are available, though delivery delays may continue while our partner libraries work to restore full operations. Overdue fines will be charged for course reserves, Summit, and Interlibrary Loan. Log into your library account to check due dates and renew items, and contact with any questions about your account. 

The books-by-mail service has now been discontinued. Graduate students who are enrolled in online or remote programs and live more than 10 miles from campus can still request mail delivery. Contact for assistance.

Getting Help

Get help via chat, email, a scheduled appointment with a librarian, or by stopping by the library service desk.  Librarians are providing in-person research consultations again, and are happy to meet over Zoom or Google Meet as well.
