Spring Semester Library Service Updates

The UMass Lowell Library will continue limited campus services for the Spring semester. You can check out and return books to campus through the semester. While O'Leary Library (South Campus) remains closed, pickups and returns of Interlibrary Loan and UMass Lowell materials will be available Mondays and Thursdays, 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. at Lydon only (North Campus). Enter Lydon on the south side of the building. This is the side with Starbucks and with the stairs that lead to the tunnel. This is where the book shelf for pick-ups and return bin will be located. Details on this process are on the library coronavirus response page.

Research and library support is available though Ask a Librarian. Search our FAQ for help or submit your questions via the ask us option on the UMass Lowell Library FAQ and Contact Information website.

Access to The Center For Lowell History is by appointment only. Visit the CLH webpage for contact information.
