March 16, 2020 - In coordination with University leadership, UW Libraries has made the decision to cease limited operations in Odegaard Undergraduate Library effective Tuesday, March 17th at 5:00 p.m. All Seattle campus Libraries will be closed to the public, with the exception of limited circulation services.

Services and support for teaching and learning continue remotely.

The health and safety of our staff and users are the priority.  Supporting adherence to public health recommendations on social distancing is imperative at this time.
