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.
- Occupancy restrictions are in place and may cause delays to your admittance to the library.
- Given restrictions on occupancy numbers, 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.
Food and Drink Policy
- Eating is prohibited in the library.
- Users may bring non-alcoholic drinks into the library if using a spill-proof beverage container; use of alcohol is prohibited.
Library Classroom, Hatfield Room and Group Study Rooms
- Use of the Library Classroom and Hatfield Room is restricted to library and archival instruction and archival research; because of distancing protocols, the number of people allowed in these rooms is limited.
- Group and individual study rooms are closed until further notice.
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.
