Dana Medical Library provides Curbside Service to UVM faculty, students, and staff, UVM Medical Center employees with a library barcode on their hospital badge, alumni, and guest borrowers, who cannot or do not want to enter a building during a pandemic.
During the library's open hours, eligible patrons may pick up library materials by appointment at the designated area in the vestibule of the Dana Medical Library's front entrance. Dana Medical Library staff will communicate with borrowers via email (or phone) to locate requested materials and coordinate pickup and drop-off times.
