McKay Music Library Guide to Fall semester 2020

The MCKAY Library will reopen on August 10, 2020

E-mail with any questions or concerns.

The McKay Library will reopen to students and faculty of the University of Utah beginning at 10:00am on August 10, 2020.  Our collections and services will be available in person and we will also continue with robust online services for all students and faculty whether or not they can come to campus. During the Fall 2020 two-week online "circuit breaker" (September 28-October 11), we will be available virtually through e-mail, and our Zoom virtual helpdesk. All tutoring will continue as usual.

We're on Zoom, here, from 8am to 6pm, Monday through Thursday; 8am to 5pm, Friday; and 11am to 2pm on Saturdays. These will also be the helpdesk hours when we are online from September 28 to October 11; and when we are all online after Thanksgiving break. Drop in for any kind of assistance or if you want to reconnect virtually with the library.

If you need a book/books/adapter/camera from the McKay collections, come to campus and we can help you in person. If you are not on campus, we can check an item out to you and arrange for pickup in the library, curbside, or by mail. Contact us.

During the online-only periods, September 28-October 11; and after Thanksgiving break, the library will be closed; however, contact us and we can see how we can assist you with emergency materials.
