COVID-19: See our Phoenix Forward page

Using the Libraries during COVID-19

UW-Green Bay Libraries remain committed to providing services and resources during the COVID-19 pandemic.

All users are expected to follow the safety measures detailed on the Phoenix Forward website.

Library Buildings and Spaces

Libraries on all four campuses are open to UW-Green Bay students, faculty and staff. Study spaces and computer workstations are available but limited to ensure safe distancing.

At Cofrin Library in Green Bay, the Library Commons on the 2nd floor and the 3rd, 5th and 6th floors are open with limited seating. The 4th floor is closed at this time. All study rooms have a maximum capacity of one person.

Please see our hours page for an up-to-date listing for all locations.

Borrowing Books and Materials

UW-Green Bay students, faculty and staff can check out books and other physical materials by requesting them in Search@UW, and our staff will retrieve them for you. The main stacks, reference collection, and some government documents are currently available to browse.

At Cofrin Library in Green Bay, you can schedule a pickup time to get your books and other materials when they are available.

Students who do not have reliable internet access can apply for a personal Wi-Fi hotspot.

Returning Books and Materials

Books may be returned to any UW-Green Bay library. Laptops and other electronic equipment need to be returned at any library service desk during open hours. Please do not place equipment in a book return box.

All returned materials will be quarantined for several days and may remain on your record during that time. You will not be charged fines for the quarantine period.

Research Help and Instruction

Research help is available via chat, email, and phone.

Library instruction is primarily online and can take many forms, such as synchronous sessions, recorded presentations or tutorials, or custom research guides.

Archives & Area Research Center
