Welcome back, Thunderbirds! The Highline College Library (Building 25 - 2nd floor) has re-opened (see our schedule for in-person hours and dates). We can’t wait to see you again! Some things will be a little different than before the pandemic, so thanks for taking a minute to review this important information to help you prepare for your first visit. Understanding these new requirements will save you time and help keep our Highline community safe!
Library services are available on the 2nd floor of Building 25 for computer use and quiet study. 3rd and 4th floors of the library are closed for Fall Quarter 2021.
Masks are required everywhere at all times.
Highline Library access will be limited to Highline employees and currently enrolled students. Library staff may ask for verification.
The Highline Library will remain a space for primarily quiet, individual study. Library study spaces are limited to 1 chair at a table, maximum of 2 students per table.
Course Reserve materials are available at the Circulation Desk for 2-hours, in-library use only.
Graphing calculators are available for quarterly rental. Find rental information.
Anatomical models are not available for student use in the library.
The library will have reduced hours/days, so be sure to check the library building hours FIRST before visiting. Need help outside of these hours? We have longer virtual hours - check our virtual library service hours.
You can get help with just about ANYTHING through our online services – we have expanded our online help capabilities, so whether you need help with research strategies, searching for reliable information, citations, or graphing calculator rentals -- just ASK US. Questions about writing? Contact the Highline Online Writing Center. Questions about campus technology lending? Contact Information Technology Services.
You’ll need to make an appointment for many services.
While the Circulation and Reference desks will be open with staff for walk-up service, other services, including virtual research consultations, will require an appointment.
Cleaning supplies will be available in all public spaces.
Remember to wash your hands and/or use sanitizer before and after touching “high touch” equipment like public computers, print stations, and after touching your mask.
Students can clean computer keyboards with Library-provided sanitization supplies–please only use the supplies provided by the Library as other types of cleaning products (i.e. your own personal wipes/cleaners) could damage computers.
Grateful acknowledgement to the UW Libraries for originally developing this message.
