Using the Library (Fall 2020): Home

A Message from Shelly Davis, Senior Director of the Learning Commons

How students use the Wellehan Library - Learning Commons facility, access resources, and receive help and guidance from staff is going to look different this Fall, but our commitment to fully supporting you - our students - remains the same as always.  We hope this guide serves to inform you of the resources and services available to you and how best to access them.  

Whatever your question or need is, the best way to start the conversation is by emailing us at askalibrarian@sjcme.edu.  We may be able to answer a quick question by email, or we may suggest we set up a time for a more in-depth conversation or demonstration.  But please never hesitate to be in touch.

How to Use the Library

Studying in the Library

For Fall 2020, the library will be a place for in-person, individual study as well as virtual, group study.  Furniture has been removed and rearranged to ensure physical distancing, so we ask that you please leave seats and tables where they are. 

As per College policy, masks are required in the library, even in the individual study rooms as they are considered "indoor common spaces."  

It is unlikely that the library's HVAC system would be able to completely turnover the air in a study room between student uses, so wearing masks in the study rooms is the safest course of action.  

The individual study rooms may be booked here.
