In its continuing efforts to support the mission of UVA Health, the Library will expand its 24-hour space access beginning on Monday, December 21, 2020 and continuing as long as the need exists.
While the availability of a COVID-19 vaccine is an incredibly welcome development, the logistics of administering it at UVA Health mean that some employees and students have temporarily lost access to available spaces. In response, the Library has temporarily expanded its 24-hour space to provide them with additional work, study, eating, and meeting location options; whereas the 24-hour space had been limited to the space to the right of the lobby, the entire Library (with the exception of the Cabell Room) is now accessible 24-hours per day for those with UVA Health access badges. This includes:
Please note that, while access to the space has been expanded, the hours of staffed service have not, remaining 8:00 A.M.- 5:00 P.M., Monday- Friday due to budget mitigation.
In order to help ensure the safety of its patrons at night and on weekends, the Library has reached out to UVA’s Director of Security, Tony Frazier, to request that Security staff members regularly walk through the expanded 24-hours space. The Library asks that patrons please make sure to display their UVA Health badge, as well as continue to wear a mask and maintain physical distancing.
If you have questions or feedback about the expansion of 24-hour access specifically, or about Library space in general, please contact Dan Wilson, Associate Director for Collections & Library Services: DanWilson@virginia.edu.
