Visit our Research Guides by Subject and Course for starting your research, and for help with working with data, please see our Research Data Services .


In accordance with SHU Policy and the SHU Pledge (https://www.shu.edu/health-intervention-communication/seton-hall-pledge.cfm), social distancing must be observed and masks must be worn at all times while in the Library.  Because we must socially distance, there are fewer seats in the Library.

Please do not move chairs/desks/furniture to sit closer to someone else. The furniture has been laid out to provide a safe space between others.

Library space is available only to SHU ID cardholders at this time.  Members of the public are not allowed, with the exception of those who have made prior arrangements with the Archives to consult Special Collections materials.

Group Study Rooms are closed and unavailable.

There is no food allowed in the Library now.  You may not eat in the building (to eat you have to take your mask off, and that’s against the rules… hence no food).  Drinks are allowed in covered containers only.

The Library will be carefully and thoroughly disinfected and cleaned every day. Sanitation wipes will be available throughout the library and we ask that you disinfect surfaces and computer keyboards and mice before use.

Starting Monday, August 17th we are offering curbside pick-up and home delivery by mail for library items.  Just place your item on hold in the catalog. When it is ready you will get an email asking how you would like to get your items.

It is fine for you to come to the 2nd floor Information Commons or to use a study carrel on the 3rd or 4th floors to “attend” a class remotely if you still need to be on campus.  We encourage using headphones/earbuds to hold down noise for fellow Pirates who need quiet to study.
