COVID-19 Phased Return

We Are Here to Help

If you have concerns or questions that are not addressed on our website, please email us at or contact your Subject Librarian, who can forward your message to the appropriate person. 

For help connecting to our online resources, visit our Technical Support page.

Our physical collections are back to normal use and our interlibrary loan service is fully operational as well, though subject to the availability of other library collections. Both UNH Library materials and Interlibrary Loan materials are renewable.

Building Access

As of June 28, visitors who are fully vaccinated or have a negative PCR test within seven days are welcome in all public campus spaces, including library spaces. Unvaccinated individuals are asked to wear masks inside, as recommended by the CDC.

Interlibrary Loan

Students and faculty who are remote (not part of the UNH COVID testing program) can still request items using Interlibrary Loan. We will deliver materials to you remotely either online or via mail. Physical items will be mailed to your address along with a prepaid return label.

To request items remotely, log in to our InterLibrary Loan system and fill out the New Request form. You must click on “Change User Information” under “Tools” and set your Preferred LOAN Delivery Method to “Mail to Address” and update your shipping address if needed. Save changes. We will ship your items to this address.

  • If you are remote and need a return shipping label, email us at
  • If you previously updated your ILLiad account to show you were remote, but you are now on campus and participating in COVID testing, please change your preferred delivery method in your ILLiad account back to “hold for pickup”
  • Items you return will get an updated status of "returned" after a short period of quarantine

Accessing Library Resources Remotely

Government Information/Federal Depository

Because the University of New Hampshire is restricting campus access as described above, the UNH Library is not currently open to external users, including those needing government information. Researchers who need access to government information should Ask a Librarian for assistance.
