Responding to COVID-19

You can chat and email with us daily! Mon-Thu 7am-7pm, Fri 7am-6pm, Sat 11am-6pm, and Sun 1pm-6pm. But due to COVID-19, all University Libraries buildings are currently closed, and we're not accepting any new hold/pickup or scanning requests for physical items.

Instruction & workshop spaces

We have a number of flexible rooms you can use for teaching, workshops, events, and more. We can accommodate as many as 250 people.

We've hosted events of all shapes and sizes, including Hack Arizona, Start-Up Weekend, Open Access Week, Think Tank study sessions, and the VR Summit. 

How to access

Hosting events 

If you'd like to host an event in one of our spaces, submit a room request. We'll try to match you up with a space that best suits your needs.

Be aware that our Collaborative Learning Spaces (Albert B. Weaver Science-Engineering Library 200S and Main Library 112A) are intended for library-related events, supplemental instruction, and other academic purposes. We approve requests on a case-by-case basis.  


Credit courses:

Albert B. Weaver Science-Engineering Library room 200S is one of several collaborative learning spaces on campus. It has multiple large displays, a teaching station, wireless microphones, and surround sound. If you are interested in teaching in it, check the semester schedule. Contact Jane Hunter for more information.

Individual classes:

We encourage instructors to incorporate information literacy and critical thinking into their course outcomes. Work with a librarian to bring your class into the library and have a dedicated class session on these topics. To get started, request instructional help.

Open study

When not reserved for an event, our two large instruction spaces are usually available to UA students, faculty, and staff for open study:

  • Albert B. Weaver Science-Engineering Library 200S: Typically available for open study after 6pm Monday through Friday and during normal library hours on Saturday and Sunday.
  • Main Library 112A: Use your CatCard for access Monday through Friday before 7am and after 9pm, as well as during normal library hours on Saturday and Sunday.
