Welcome to the DePauw University Libraries!

All of our lives are filled with change and uncertainty during 2020. First, take heart. We are here in all of the safest ways we know to serve you and support your academic endeavors. Our librarians and staff have been working hard to make sure you receive great service, even when we are not in the same physical space.

Roy O. West Library is closed this year. Renovation activity has already begun (even though that activity is currently paused), so we cannot invite you inside. But you can find the Prevo Science Library and Music Library open with limited hours and a reconfigured layout to keep us all safe and distanced.

On our website you will find links to our many services and resources so important to teaching, learning and research. Ask for help if you need it. Email, call us (765-658-4420) or chat us. We are committed to your success and stand ready to assist you.

So take care, stay safe and keep in touch!

Dean of Libraries
