Closing and changes in hours

Health Sciences Library staffing until further notice

The Health Sciences Library operations will be completely virtual now until further notice; PA College is closing its campus though maintaining normal operations virtually during this time out of an abundance of caution to proactively protect our students, staff, and faculty from COVID-19. Please note there are no active cases on campus, but we are being proactive. Librarians will also suspend our regular Tuesday staffing at 410 N. Lime Street until further notice.  We will be available by email (our preferred method of communication) and phone (please leave a message if we are unable to answer your call immediately) during this time, and we can arrange web conferencing as well. All literature searches and article requests will be processed as usual.


Regular hours:

  • Greenfield: Monday-Friday 8:00AM - 5:00PM (staffed); Learning Commons at Greenfield is accessible any time the Cooper Building is accessible.
  • Beginning January 21 - 410 North Lime Street in first floor lounge: Tuesdays 8:30 AM – 12:30 PM and by appointment 
  • Please note that the library follows the delayed and closing schedule for Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences.
