As part of the university’s Phase 1 Return to Research plan, the Johns Hopkins Libraries—comprised of the Sheridan Libraries, the Welch Medical Library, the SAIS Library, the Arthur Friedheim Library, and the APL Library—are resuming book returns, book pickups, and limited in-person research activities by appointment only.
Details about the health and safety guidance and operational aspects that will govern individuals returning to campus are outlined in the JHU Return to Research Guidance and the JHU Return to Campus Guidance. Additional information is available in the frequently asked questions section on the JHU Planning website.
We will closely monitor the pandemic to determine whether our plans must be changed. It is possible, if conditions warrant, that our return could be further limited or reversed, and we ask researchers for their understanding as we seek to put the community’s health and safety first.
All affiliates on campus are asked to follow these directives:
- Adhere to physical distancing guidelines. (Remain 6 feet apart from other individuals).
- Wear a face covering while on campus and inside campus buildings.
- Follow all signage and staff directions.
