Mark O. Hatfield Library (MOHL) COVID-19 Related Policy Updates

The following changes to MOHL policies are based on federal, state, and institutional guidance related to patron and staff safety. These changes supersede previous policies until further notice.   Where no COVID-related policy change is noted, the original policy remains in effect.  


  • All campus policies regarding conduct, personal behavior and safety remain in effect in the library.


  • Access is by swipe card only and is restricted to students, faculty and staff of Willamette University and the Claremont School of Theology.
  • We request that members of our campus community minimize bringing spouses and children into the library.
  • Unaffiliated users and school groups may not access the library at this time, which means public computers for unaffiliated users are NOT available at this time.  


Library Policies

The library has a number of policies to ensure and protect the reputation of the institution - best realized through the adoption of clearly written library policies. Written policies provide consistency for students, staff, faculty and community members, help to resolve misunderstandings, reduce incidents of conflict and help to protect from litigation.
