Summer 2023 Library Services
While library staff and services will be available, floors 1-3 of McKillop Library will be CLOSED for the summer during construction on the first floor. Construction is scheduled to begin on May 15 and is expected to last through the end of August. While the top three floors of the building will be closed to all patrons, staff will be on-site and working remotely to provide library services to the Salve Community.
Garden Level Services such as Mail Services, the Technology Services Center, Design Services, and the Copy Center are expected to remain accessible via the Lawrence Avenue entrance through the summer with potential short term closures (always available by phone and email) due to construction on the first floor.
Circulation & Interlibrary Loan
Librarians will be available by phone, webchat, and email for reference questions, or by Zoom by appointment for research consultations.
Please see our Ask-A-Librarian hours page for research assistance availability and holiday observances.
The library will continue to order and catalog books during the summer. Please feel free to make a purchase request.
Librarians are available to provide summertime graduate research instruction in-person, via zoom, or through an online research guide. Feel free to reach out to Lisa Richter or Dawn Emsellem to schedule summertime instruction.
