Library services for visitors: Special programs

Information for visitors to the MIT Libraries

Service update

The MIT Libraries are implementing a phased plan for providing access to physical collections. We will update the Libraries’ service updates page as services evolve. Library locations and study spaces remain closed until further notice.

Most services will be limited to current MIT faculty, students, and staff. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
