During inclement weather, the Health Sciences Library schedule may change unexpectedly, as the safety of the Library staff and patrons is our first priority.
The following should be considered when planning a trip to the Library during inclement weather:
- If the University is closed (classes canceled and offices closed), the Library will be closed.
- If the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office (https://sheriff.franklincountyohio.gov/Information/Snow-Level-Emergency) has issued a Level 3 Snow Emergency, the Library will be closed.
- If the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office has issued a Level 2 Snow Emergency, the Library Director or a member of the Library Executive Team will determine if the Library will be closed, will open late or close early due to predicted dangerous weather and road conditions.
We strive to alert patrons of the decision to close or alter our hours within minutes of making a decision. The Library will post closings, delays in opening, or early closings on our website, Facebook Page, and on Twitter.
