The Reading Room will open to the Angelicum community beginning the 14th of September. (This date is subject to change if circumstances warrant it).
The Library will reopen on October 1. (This date is subject to change if circumstances warrant it).
Entrance to the library will be managed by staff based on reservations and available seats. During operating hours, the library may choose to lock the door if the occupancy limit of the library is reached.
For all those who intend to access the library, it is mandatory to wear a mask and gloves and sanitize hands with the specific detergent medium present at the entrance.
A "document delivery" service and the digital supply of articles or book chapters on request will be offered for university students.
Books will be collected from students in cellophane envelopes and once returned they will be left in quarantine (with no use) for at least 10 days in special spaces in the library, with the reference of the delivery date for each of the texts.
Any library materials that are touched by patrons in the Reading Room must be turned into the circulation, placed in cellophane bags and quarantined for 10 days.
Library materials in "quarantine" will be itemized with the date received and the date to be returned into the collection.
Available places will be reduced, 1 place for each table can be used alternately. There are 16 seats in the 4-seater tables and 16 in the 6-seater tables, plus the availability of a single table, for a total of 33 seats available. Signs will be posted and furniture for use will be marked to avoid confusion.
Patrons of the library must maintain a distance of one meter when waiting on line to enter or to pick up/drop off books.
Detergents will be made available for cleaning the surfaces of study areas and workstations. Patrons of the library will be required to disinfect their work area before and after its use. Paper towels used for disinfecting should be thrown into mixed waste containers and patrons should immediately sanitize their hands after disinfecting. Signs will be posted indicating such.
The Library will be closed from 12:30 to 13:15 so that the cleaning staff can sanitize common areas within the library, including seating areas, keyboards, mice, counters, handles, etc.
As an added measure to prevent contagion, plexiglass barriers have been installed at the circulation counters.
