At the direction of the CDC, governor, and Yale University, we have temporarily closed the YDS Bookstore due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This will extend until at least May 1st, 2020. Orders placed during this time cannot be shipped or picked up until we reopen.

The Bookstore Team is still working remotely, and you can always reach us by email at We are here to help anyway we can, from arranging later ship dates, providing recommended readings, or just being someone to talk to during this difficult time. We appreciate your patience and understanding—and please know that we miss you all so much. Be safe and stay healthy!
