Library Updates (brief)

Updated: 1-19-21

Course Reserves: This spring, we will continue to seek digital versions of reserves materials but when such an option is not available, we will offer limited physical reserves. An item on physical reserve will circulate for 4 hours and then, following the recommendations of the university’s COVID squad, be quarantined for 72 hours before it can be borrowed again. Because of this quarantine, physical reserves is best for items that can be usefully referenced throughout the semester; it won’t be helpful for a class all trying to watch the same DVD. If you have other questions about Course Reserves, please visit

Remote Student Services: We are offering remote students some new services this year in an effort to ensure their success during the pandemic. This includes mailing print books to students' homes while they are studying remotely. You can learn about all our Remote Student Services here:

Library Instruction: All Library instruction sessions will continue to be offered remotely through Zoom or asynchronously. To request a session please fill out the Faculty Library Instruction Request Form or email me.
