Maag Library Reopening Announcement

Welcome Back to Maag! 

Maag Library and Curriculum Resource Center in Beeghly Hall are open with the following protocols in place to keep you and others safe:  

  • All visitors are required to wear masks at all times (over mouth and nose) and practice physical distancing.
  • Hand sanitizer and cleaning supply stations are available to wipe off tables/chairs before and after use.   
  • Temperature station available at north entrance. 
  • Furniture and computers spaced to allow for physical distancing. Do not move furniture, including chairs.
  • Food/snacks is allowed ONLY in the 3rd floor Maag Café area. Covered cups allowed elsewhere.
  • Plexi-glass installed in service areas. 
  • Following expert recommendations, all returned print materials will be set aside or “quarantined” for 72 hours.  
  • Maag & CRC collections will be handled by staff only. Stacks closed to patrons. Appointments available for vulnerable, high-risk patrons. 
  • Questions? Call us at 330-941-3675 or visit the Maag Library Home Page.  

As we continue to offer access to digital resources, various contact-free services, and virtual patron support, we encourage you to take advantage of these services: 

  • Request items from the Maag or CRC collections through the MaagNET Library Catalog and pick up at the Maag Library Circulation Desk.  
  • OhioLINK has resumed print lending. You may request items through the OhioLINK Library Catalog. To protect users, they have changed some delivery and processing procedures, so items may take longer to arrive.
  • Check out materials using your new Y Card in the YSU App (student life section), the YSU Portal (under e-Services), or directly at
  • Use Electronic Document Delivery or Interlibrary Loan.  
  • For Maag Library and CRC book returns, use the outside book drop located on the west side of Maag Library anytime. You may also drop off returns at the Maag Circulation Desk during library hours.  
  • The computer lab will open for self-service use. See Maag Computer Lab for more information. 
  • Need Research Help or Library Instruction? Librarians are available virtually during library hours to help you: 

Thank you for your support and understanding as we navigate our new realities together.
