About the Libraries and Off-Campus Information

Most of the printed sources on educational technology in the curriculum will probably be located at Keffer Library.  You may occasionally find a book or journal that is housed at O-Shaughnessey-Frey Library (or possibly in another CLICnet library).  You may request items at other libraries through interlibrary loan.  If you are in an off-campus cohort (and outside the metro area), you may request any circulating books from any library (including Keffer) on interlibrary loan and they will be mailed to you.
