Library Information Services during COVID-19: Home

Here our patron will find the most up-to-date information about Library Services.


Langston Hughes Memorial Library in the Era of Visual Learning

The pandemic has not allowed us the opportunity for regular in-person service for over a year.  However, that hasn't hindered us from serving our students and other patrons. Langston Hughes Memorial Library is now providing services remotely and access to millions of physical resources that could no longer be delivered in-person are now available online.
To provide remote assistance,  a "Chat" platform has been implemented to allow patrons to chat "live" with library staff during normal business hours. Lincoln University students, faculty, administrators, as well as staff, are all entitled to our library remote services regardless of where they are physically located.

COVID -19 Protective Measures


Face coverings, often called masks, can help stop your germs from infecting others. Research has shown that wearing masks reduces the risk of infection, especially when combined with other prevention efforts such as washing your hands often and staying 6 feet away from others.


The social distancing state and local guidelines is 6ft.


COVID-19 Update at Lincoln University

What should I expect living on campus during a pandemic

Creating the "Den"
  • Creating the “Den” is the first step to providing a safe and protected environment for the Lincoln University family – students, faculty, staff – as well as visitors who may have to enter our “Den.” Our goal is to create a campus where everyone can be assured that we are all committed to doing everything we can to ensure as much as possible that the safety of our “Den” is not compromised.
  • As a general rule, all those entering the campus will be required to abide by basic COVID risk mitigation such as wearing face coverings, social distancing, and washing of hands.
  • In addition, important specific protocols governing campus residency have been established for move-in and throughout the spring semester.
