Many university students find themselves spending a significant portion of their college career at the on-campus library since it is a free space for individual or collaborative focus, offers an abundance of resources for projects and papers, and has computers readily available. Due to Covid-19, university libraries and public libraries have put tighter restrictions in place to keep the public, students, faculty and staff safe.

While some libraries are operating at a decreased occupancy, some are still only offering curbside pickup, scheduled appointments, or are closed completely.

For those that miss hanging out in libraries, we’ve put together a list of videos touring amazing libraries around the world – as well as photos of our campus libraries to pay homage to UW Madison, Edgewood College and University of Iowa City.
