The faculty and staff of the Swisher Library welcome you into the Library this fall semester. We have some modifications to the physical space and some library services in place in an effort to maintain safety. 

Library operating plans are fluid and ongoing. Check back frequently for updates. 

See Jacksonville University's Determined to Stay page for university-wide updates.
