The following email was sent to the Law School community on March 13, 2020.
Dear Law School Community:
In light of the University’s decision today to close Bobst Library as a high traffic area, we similarly will be closing the Law Library as of 5 pm today, Friday, March 13.
Although the Law Library will be physically closed, the library will not cease all operations. For faculty and students in need of reference services, our librarians will be available to assist them remotely. Please email requests to LawLibRef@mercury.law.nyu.edu.
Vanderbilt Hall classrooms (with the exception of VH202) will be open as study spaces during building hours of 7am – 11pm, and Wachtell Café also will be open during our building hours.
We are taking these measures based on guidance from health authorities to protect the well-being of our students and employees while also ensuring that we have some space and café offerings available for those who prefer to spend time on campus in the coming weeks. I encourage everyone to maintain social distancing practices in these spaces.
Once again, I thank all of you for your commitment and patience as we navigate this changing situation. We will continue to keep you updated.
