      Libraries

      IUP Libraries

      The IUP Libraries will be open only to students and faculty and staff members during the fall 2020 semester to reduce the risk of virus transmission. Because of limited seating, we are prioritizing purposeful use, such as quiet study and student use of technology to succeed in their classes.

      Study spaces will be spread out and limited to ensure social distancing, and we ask patrons not to move tables or chairs. Wipes will be available to clean all surfaces before and after use, and a voluntary temperature check station has been installed in the Stapleton main lobby. Face coverings will be required at all times, following IUP guidelines.

      However, the post office will take special precautions to keep students and employees safe. For example, face masks will be required, the lobby will have a 10-person limit, and students will need to ask a postal employee to retrieve their mail—they will not be able to access their own mailboxes. For more information, see “Everything You Need to Know about Using the IUP Post Office.”

      For IUP departments, the post office will continue to manage bulk mail services, incoming mail/packages via USPS, and outgoing mail on a daily basis. Learn more: “Postal Service Operations for Fall 2020.”

      If you are not able to pick up mail items, , please complete a forwarding card.

      • Visit the Forms section of the Post Office website and choose the “Form for Forwarding University Post Office Mail.” Complete the form, save it to your computer, then email the card to university-postmaster@iup.edu.
      • After the Post Office receives this, USPS mail/packages will be forwarded to you. UPS and FedEx do not offer this service. Those items will be returned to the sender if you cannot pick them up.
