What library services are available winter term 2021?

January 4, 2021 - March 19, 2021 Winter Term

The university is currently planning for the main floor of the Valley Library building to be open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday; hours of operation may be extended after the first three to four weeks of the term. 

ACCESS TO LIBRARY SPACES/FLOORS

We plan to offer study space on the main floor of the Valley Library by reservation only in winter 2020. Use Reserve a Seat to request a study space or computer workstation in advance, or library staff will help you make a reservation when you arrive. Library personnel will assess the usage of space to determine if additional floors (levels 3-6) can prudently be reopened, depending on health guidance.  

 SERVICE HIGHLIGHTS

  • Digital services including Ask a Librarian, research consultations, instruction support and more will continue throughout winter term.
  • Interlibrary loan services will remain available, and we plan to continue Scan and Deliver services and to mail physical items to users. Summit services may resume at a later date.
  • We plan to process purchase requests for course materials and other resources. 
  • Staff of the library’s Special Collections and Archives Research Center are available to consult via virtual reference by appointment only on Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. We anticipate that staff will be available for in-person reference by appointment only for winter term.
