Is the library open? What are the current library hours?
Librarians are available to answer questions via email and chat between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Pacific time Monday through Thursday, and on Friday mornings. Online appointments may be available to be scheduled at other times. Access the live chat option by clicking on Ask Us in the upper right corner of the library website, or call (509) 527-2134.

Peterson Memorial Library buildings and book returns are closed to all users including students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the Walla Walla Valley community and will remain closed per Washington state Phase 2 guidelines for libraries. Curbside services for physical items and Summit materials are available during fall quarter. Watch the WWU Daily Announcements for updates or follow us on Instagram or Twitter. 

Due dates on active loans—including Summit items—have been extended to reflect the closure. Library staff are contacting individuals with library materials to create a plan for returning materials. For information about renewals or other circulation-related questions, please contact the library at (509) 527-2134 or via email at 

Online materials such as full-text journals, eBooks, and videos are available through the WWU Libraries website. Chat and email research assistance will be provided during typical working hours. You may also use the LibAnswers system to search for Frequently Asked Questions or to ask a librarian a question.

What if the classes I need aren’t available online? Will it delay my graduation if I have to stay home?
Provisions have been made for classes to be taught in multiple modalities. Your advisor can help you make sure you remain on track for completing your program and achieving your plans for graduation. 

How are labs going to be taught? And engineering classes? 
Some labs are online, some face-to-face. This applies for engineering classes as well. Please check the class schedule to see details pertaining to the labs you need. If a lab normally has a lab fee, then the fee will be the same for online labs. For a few classes, students purchase an online lab kit, which has a lower cost.
