Caltech Library Services During COVID-19

Updated April 29, 2022


Physical Access to Library Spaces

Library spaces are open ONLY to CURRENT Caltech students, faculty, and staff. There is no access currently for alumni, reciprocal borrowers, or members of the public at this time.

You must wear a KN95 or N95 face mask at all times and observe posted social distancing rules. If you are not wearing your mask appropriately while in any of the Library spaces, you can be asked to leave and behavior will be reported to your Dean or Supervisor.

Current hours can be found on the Library website Hours page.
