Update on NIH Library Services from the NIH Library Director

As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we have been working with our leadership to ensure we are doing the right thing for our community. Effective March 18, we will be closing the NIH Library facility in Building 10 as part of the overall NIH effort “to promote social distancing and help ‘flatten the curve’ of COVID-19 spread across our area.”

Please know that our staff and services are still available for you during this time.

Although the physical Library is closed, many NIH Library resources are available online and can be accessed remotely. NIH staff can access them via the NIH VPN or through the NIH Library’s remote access service. Eligible HHS employees should connect through the remote access service.

We encourage you to visit the following public health resources for up-to-date information and guidance on COVID-19.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause during this challenging time. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
