RFK Library | Study Spaces
The University Libraries will begin providing limited access, in-person service to University of Guam patrons. Patrons wishing to visit in-person will want to check the UOG and the Library’s website to find out the most current information regarding hours of operation, available library services, and virtual support.
The University Libraries will be following the University Administration and the Government of Guam’s guidelines related to social distancing, facemasks/face coverings, sanitization, and monitoring of movement. All visitors entering the library must have their temperature checked. Visitors with a temperature of 100°F or greater will not be permitted to enter the building.
Students and faculty will then check into the building by using their library card. If a visitor does not have a valid UOG ID, that person will be asked to provide information necessary for contact tracing. Masks will be required to enter and must remain in place (covering mouth and nose) while in library buildings or on campus.
The RFK Memorial Library will be open for library services Monday through Thursday, from 8am-5:30pm and Friday, 9am-5pm. From 12:00pm - 1:00pm, the library will close for sanitization. Only patrons with confirmed appointments, and who pass the UOG UPPOP-3 guidelines, will be allowed into the building. Appointments for individual study spaces are made via phone or email at least 24 hours in advance and up to 7 days prior to the requested date and time; same day appointments or extensions of study spaces may only be entertained if there is space available. There is no guarantee that last minute requests or extensions will be accommodated.
At this time, only seating on the first floor will be open to faculty, staff, and students wishing to study or do research. Requests for library materials must be made at the Research Assistance Desk or the Service Desk. These books/materials will be retrieved via a paging system by library staff. Virtual services are available via email, phone, or teleconferencing.
The Quiet Room (2nd Floor) will house the First Year Experience courses this academic year. All conference rooms will be used as Green Zone rooms for students who need a place to be able to take a class. Staircases are designated one-way zones with the Central Stairs (next to the Reference Desk & GovDocs) serving as the up staircase and the Eastern Stairs (closest to the windows facing the Student Center) serving as the down staircase.
The MARC Collections will be open Monday through Thursday 9am-4pm. Only patrons with confirmed appointments, and who pass the UOG UPPOP-3 guidelines, will be allowed into the building. Appointments for entrance into the collection will be made via email or phone at least 24 hours in advance or up to 7 days prior to the designated date and time.
Please keep track of the UOG and RFK websites for updated changes and information.
