Dear Students,

Welcome “back”! As you know, courses are online—and so is the library! We hope your transition to online coursework goes as smoothly as possible, and here are some ways we’re working to help make that happen:


We have put together a LibGuide with information related to online classes, accessing library materials, and more here: We recommend bookmarking it for quick reference. Library fines are being waived, so don’t worry if your materials are overdue!
