Library Use

The back entrance and Jazzman's Café & Bakery will remain closed during Fall Intersession but will re-open during the Fall Semester.

Face coverings are required in all areas of the Library and everyone is expected to practice appropriate physical distancing.

The University adopted an Interim Face Covering Policy on Friday, June 4, 2021, to help ensure a healthy and safe campus community. The policy requires that face coverings be worn at all times while indoors on University property and while awaiting, boarding, traveling in, or disembarking from all University buses. It recommends that face coverings be worn outdoors while on University property. Students who are unable to wear face coverings because of a medical or behavioral condition or disability may seek a reasonable accommodation by being registered with the Office of Disability Services and contacting disability@louisiana.edu for next steps.
