Requested Books

Library staff will wear gloves whenever handling the books.

Only one staff member will handle books at this time. If we need to ask other staff to do so, we will wait for a period of 72 hours in between accesses to allow them to decontaminate naturally.


Book Quarantine Study Room

Books or other items are to be quarantined for 72 hours on arrival or after known human contact.

There are multiple tables in our dedicated locked quarantine study room, with an ionizer and standing signs. The ionizer will run whenever there are books in the room.

  1. Rat signs will be on the tables with items that have been in the quarantine room for less than 72 hours. Remember – treat these books like dead rats. Do not touch them with bare hands.
  2. Each table will only have items received on a single day. 
  3. Write the day and time the books were added on the white board next to the relevant table.


Shelving Books

Library staff will shelve any books finished with quarantine before handling new returns. Library staff will wear gloves whenever handling the books.

  1. Upon entering the room, check the day and time written next to each table on the white board to be sure it has been 72 hours, then wipe it clean.
    1. If it has not been 72 hours, do not wipe the board or move the books.
  2. Collect books that have been in the room at least 72 hours.
  3. Check the books back into the system or into MOBIUS.
  4. Shelve our books.
  5. Package MOBIUS’s books into a courier bag that has finished quarantine.


Returned or Newly Arrived MOBIUS Books

Staff will collect returned or newly arrived MOBIUS books from the Commons by picking up the return or delivery bins. Returned or newly arrived books will stay in the library’s quarantine room for 72 hours.

These books are to be considered contaminated. They are dead rats. If someone needs to move one, use a stick or gloves. 

  1. Collect a bin of returned books from the Commons area Book & Media Drop without touching the books within it.
  2. Put a new bin into the Book & Media Drop.
