Service Note

Harvard has shifted all activities to remote status through January 23, 2022. The Frances Loeb Library is closed and providing virtual services at this time. We will re-open to the Harvard community on January 24.

Starting February 7, the GSD will be permitting visitors without an HUID to enter our buildings, provided they are vaccinated against COVID-19 with an FDA- or WHO-approved vaccine, have received a booster shot if they are eligible to receive one, and have proof of a negative COVID-19 test result within 48 hours prior to campus arrival.

Before entering the Loeb Library, visitors will be required to check-in at Gund Hall’s Quincy Street entrance. A security guard will review proof of vaccination and negative COVID-19 test result, along with a photo identification. Visitors also will need to complete and submit a wellness form attesting that they are symptom-free and have not been diagnosed or exposed to COVID-19 in the past 14 days.

For more information, please see the GSD's Reopening Guidelines. Contact Special Collections through Ask a Design Librarian
