Food will not be permitted in the Library and Learning Commons areas as masks would be off for an extended amount of time. Drinks will be permitted if the drink container has a lid.

Library Sign-In

Students are required to sign-in when using the Library for contact tracing purposes. Students can sign-in two locations:
  1. Use the kiosk in the Learning Commons - if an assistant is at the kiosk, give them your ID card to swiped. If no one is there, swipe your card and choose LIBRARY rather than Learning Commons. If you are using the Learning Commons, sign in as usual. Clean the keyboard with the disinfectant/cloth provided.
  2. Use the kiosk on the counter of the Moye Library Circulation Desk.

Circulation Services

The library stacks will be open for browsing and to retrieve your own materials. If necessary, you may request a specific item by title to be pulled for pick up.

  • Print items (books) can be checked out.
  • Print items should be returned to the exterior book drop beside the doors at the entrance near the Henderson Building or inside to the box near the Reference Desk. Do not place them on the counter. Put them in the box.
  • All materials will be quarantined for at least 48 hours before they will be available for check out again. Reopening Archives, Libraries, and Museums (REALM) Information Hub: A COVID-19 Research Project indicates that COVID-19 does survive on print materials.

Research Assistance

For the safety of the Student and the Moye Library staff, research assistance will be done virtually by:

  • Chat Box: Use the Chat Box on the Moye Libray homepage to chat live with a librarian. (Chat Box Information)
  • Email: Email us with your questions at, or you can Email a specific member of our staff by using the Moye Library Staff Directory. (Response can take up 24-48 hours.)
  • Phone: Call us with your questions at (919) 658-7869.
  • Zoom Conference: Request a Zoom Conference for more hands-on assistance. You can request a Zoom Conference through our Reference Help Appointment Form. (Zoom Information)

Each of these methods can also be accessed through the Contact Us page.

Study Areas

Students/patrons should clean the area they work in.

  • Disinfecting materials will be placed in several areas. Please use these materials to wipe the area(s) that you work in, before and after use.

A Fluid Situation

Dealing with the COVID-19 is an ever-changing, fluid situation. As local, state, and/or national guidelines change, so will Moye Library's policies and procedures. This page and Moye Library's social media will keep you up to date on any changes that may take place.
