COVID-19 Update - Level 2

Library Services While We Teach Remotely

(last updated March 25, 2021)

Memorial University is mainly teaching remotely for the Winter 2021 semester,. Since the closure of Memorial University Libraries in March 2020, library employees have been working remotely and on-site to ensure the continuity of services, as well enhancing digital collections and virtually supporting research, e-learning and remote course delivery. Please visit Memorial University's COVID-19 Information Hub for official updates.
