W&M Libraries Resources to Support Teaching & Learning During the COVID-19 Outbreak

Instructional Opportunities

If you're a professor moving your course online, consider partnering with W&M Libraries:

Contact your Subject Librarian to talk about the options!

 

Remote Resources for W&M Library Users

When the Library is closed, or you prefer to work remotely, there are many ways the Libraries can provide you with expert help and services. Always check the Libraries website for the latest info about our hours and services.

You already know the library databases provide access to thousands of scholarly journals.  The pages listed on the left side of this guide contain links to databases with perhaps some lesser-known content that can be accessed remotely, such as streaming video and music, as well as ebooks and data.  

Librarian Consultations

Subject librarians with expertise in specific areas are available for remote consultations via phone, email, or online (e.g. Zoom).

Librarian-designed Research Assignments

For faculty, librarians are able upon request to create library research assignments that students can accomplish 100% remotely.

Online Materials and Tools

W&M Libraries have loads of digital materials available for you if you can’t make it to campus to pick up physical items.

  • W&M Libraries Search
    Use the filters on the left hand side of the search results screen to focus on ebooks, streaming audio or video, and other online resources.
  • Articles & Research Databases
    We have hundreds of databases that provide access to digital articles, video, and more!
  • Off-Campus Access
    If you are not on campus, you can still log in via the Libraries website using your W&M credentials to access library databases and other resources!

Interlibrary Loan

We can deliver journal articles and book chapters from the W&M Libraries collection and from other libraries directly to you at no charge. This service is available for current faculty and staff only.

Renew Books Online

You can also renew your books online - just log into Your Library Account. You will see your active loans displayed on the Loans section. Look for the title you need to renew and click renew. You can also renew all your active loans by selecting Renew All.

Returning Materials

Please keep the library materials you have checked out. All fines and fees for overdue books, equipment and DVDs will be waived. If you will be on campus for move-out in May or June and want to return books, the book-drop at the front entrance of Swem and the drive-up book-drop behind Swem are open.
