For the fall semester, the Libraries reimagined our spaces and services to provide a high quality learning experience for students. We understand the importance of having access to our unique research print collection as well as comfortable study space to do your coursework and conduct your research.
During library hours, all floors will be open at each location. You will be able to browse our vast print collection and use our new MeeScan self-checkout machines or mobile App for quick, easy contactless check out of the books. You can also request print material be placed on the contactless self-serve hold shelf to pick up at your convenience. Print course reserves will be available and the books will be sanitized between use for your protection.
For your safety, we have rearranged our furniture to promote physical distancing as well as removed some seating so there is less density overall. Due to COVID-19, only one person is allowed in our ‘group’ study rooms at one time. The Information Commons will be available with a reduced number of computers and reconfigured printing.
We haveFind It Logo a vast array of online services and collections. Use our online Find It! discovery search tool to locate online (and print) library materials for your class. Check out our subject guides for resources by topic or Finding and Using Ebooks guide. Get research help via our online Ask A Librarian service 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday. Visit our How to Do Library Research guide for advice on finding relevant materials for your assignments.
Special Collections will be open by appointment only, Monday-Friday. Appointments must be made at least 24 hours (one business day) prior to requesting the specific item(s) needed during the visit. For all inquiries and to schedule appointments, send an email to speccoll@binghamton.edu.

Keep 6 feet apart

When visiting the Libraries, you must adhere to the health and safety policies of the University, including wearing a face covering over your nose and mouth as well as social distancing at least six feet apart.
