Library COVID-19 Update

Source: Wikimedia Commons
As of the time of this post, there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Samford's campus.  There are however confirmed cases elsewhere in the state of Alabama.  Samford is making significant operational changes to minimize the risk of exposure to COVID-19 for students, faculty and staff.

Starting today, March 16th, all university courses have temporarily moved to online delivery. Students will hear directly from faculty regarding instructions for online classes if they have not already done so. Likewise, students with internships or clinical requirements should contact their faculty advisors for guidance if they haven't already.

In addition, based on new guidance from the CDC suggesting sustained community spread and widespread global transmission of COVID-19, Samford University has instructed its employees to work from home beginning Tuesday, March 17th. Our gates will be locked and only essential personnel will be allowed on campus.

The Samford University Library has created an online guide that can help you contact library departments, conduct research, find instructional support, and ask for help while the university is offering online instruction during COVID-19.  You can access this guide by clicking here.

For more information regarding how the university as a whole is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, please visit the Samford coronavirus website by clicking here.

We will share updates through our social media platforms as they become available:

We look forward to resuming our on-campus operations as soon as possible.  In the meantime, stay safe everyone!
