We know there is a lot of disruption due to the COVID-19 outbreak with the University's decision to move to online learning and to close the library buildings in order to help reduce the spread of the virus. We want you to know that the University Libraries are here to support you and to continue to provide you with excellent resources and information services. We have a robust set of resources and services that are available to the University community online, whether you're working from home, from your dorm room, or somewhere else. This guide will point you to those collections, services, and resources. While this guide was created in response to the University's move to online teaching due to COVID-19, these resources are available any time.
We understand that many people have books and other materials checked out and cannot return them. Due dates have been extended, we do not charge overdue fines, and we have suspended billing for lost items until further notice.
If you would like to return a book, you can do so at one of our book drops at O'Shaughnessy-Frey library. There are two book drops you can use:
If you are graduating and have library items which you can't return to the O'Shaughnessy-Frey Library's book drops, please contact email@example.com to discuss options for returning materials.
