Manderino Library Computer & Internet Access Restrictions

Manderino Library has been approved for a pilot project to provide COMPUTER and INTERNET ACCESS for Cal U students, faculty, and staff.

Cal U students and employees may use the computer workstations in Manderino Library from 9 am to 5 pm Monday-Thursday and 9 am to 4 pm Friday. Hours may change depending on usage; occupancy will be limited to 75 people (including library staff).

To mitigate the risk to our campus community, these rules will be in effect:

  1. All patrons must check in immediately upon entering the library. Library staff will conduct temperature checks using contactless thermometers. Patrons who are fever-free (temperature below 100.4 degrees) will be instructed to sign in using Starfish. This will allow Cal U to support contact tracing if a positive case of COVID-19 is reported.
  2. All library patrons must follow Health Department guidelines: You must wear a mask or face covering at all times and keep at least 6 feet way from others. (Students who are unable to wear a mask for medical reasons should contact the Office for Students with Disabilities at
  3. Patron access will be limited to the library’s first floor, where computer workstations are at least 6 feet apart. Patrons are not permitted to gather in groups.
  4. Sanitation stations with disinfecting wipes and hand sanitizer will be prominently displayed on the first floor. Patrons should wipe down the tabletop, keyboard and computer mouse before use.
  5. Patrons may bring their own filled water bottled, but no other food or drink is permitted in the library. Restrooms will be open and cleaned regularly. Water fountains will be turned off.
  6. All library patrons (Cal U students, faculty and staff) must use Starfish to sign out before they depart. Again, this is essential to support contact tracing.
  7. Books and other loanable items will continue to be available through our Curbside Pick-up Service. Patrons will not have direct access to materials on the first floor.
