About the Library



The Health Sciences Library is currently open to anyone with a UVA Health ID.  Limited onsite services are available 8am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.  Beginning Saturday, January 23rd, the back three rooms of the 2nd floor after hours space will be used for saliva testing.  Therefore, that space will be off limits to patrons and the only Library access will be through the front doors, using the card swipe.  The large study space on the second floor will remain available as will our expanded after hours space on the first floor.  The HIT computers have been moved to the Library lobby.  The only available printers will also be in the lobby.
