Inclement Weather Policy

Marshall Libraries and Online Learning, Including Drinko Library

In cases of inclement weather, Libraries and Online Learning, including Drinko Library, will follow Marshall directives during regular business hours (Monday through Friday 8am until 5pm). For example, if the University is on a two-hour delay, MU Libraries and Online Learning will also be on a two-hour delay.

Outside of regular business hours, Drinko Library personnel on duty, in conjunction with the Drinko Building Manager, Library Administration and IT Administration, will determine if, in the event of inclement weather or other emergency, the building will be closed. The building will close upon receipt of a University closing or delay message and reopen at the time designated by University Administration.

Library and Online Learning hours may also be affected by other emergencies such as prolonged loss of power or heat/cooling. Check the Libraries website and social media accounts for the most up-to-date hours information.

The Government Documents Library, Special Collections, and the Morrow Stacks will follow University and Libraries and Online Learning inclement weather policy.

The Library at MUSC will follow the inclement weather policy of the South Charleston campus. Call 304-746-8910 or 1-304-696-4723 for additional information about the MUSC Library.
