Q: Do students have to reserve time in libraries if space is limited?

A: We do not yet know how significant the demand for space in our buildings will be. We will monitor capacity and if we reach it, a line will form and we will allow one person in when one comes out. We will monitor the situation and make adjustments in operations as necessary.
