Requirements to be on campus

Please note that all on-campus students must follow College requirements to:

  1. Wear a facemask that covers your mouth and nose
  2. Bring your green check mark after completing the daily campus health screening form. If you are sick, have been exposed to COVID, or have a temperature or symptoms, please do not come to campus.

“We’re pleased to provide by-appointment use of the library space this semester in a manner that is safe and socially distanced. We know that the space we provide is an important component of students’ learning outside the classroom,” said Kate Harger, HFC Director of the Library and Academic Support Services.

Online and phone services continue

Online services such as Ask a Librarian and assistance with research and accessing Library resources will remain in effect too. Most of the library’s services are currently provided via telephone or online. The best way to get a librarian’s assistance with a research assignment is to select “Ask A Librarian”.

Please contact the library before coming to campus. For questions or more information, contact Harger at 313-845-9760 or
