Please note, masks are required when using the Library. DePaul highly recommends using medical grade masks such as KN95 or N95 masks. If you do not have an N95 or KN95 mask, you may double mask with a cloth mask layered over a surgical one. Everyone is expected to provide their own mask, however KN95 masks are now available on campus. Visit the face mask FAQs for locations. For more information on mask wearing, visit the CDPH website. For more details see the University’s Covid-19 Booster and Mask Guidelines and the COVID-19 and DePaul Library Services page.
