The Central Libraries are closed and a vast array of digital resources and online assistance are available on this site. Our special collections libraries are also closed and you can visit them online using the Libraries menu above. Visit Keep Learning to access librarian assistance and resources remotely.
UPDATE: The Libraries continue to restrict access to the Central Libraries to Baylor ID Card swipe access and to allow access to its special collection libraries by appointment only. In addition, areas within the Central Libraries are closed to traffic and materials should be returned to external drop boxes.
