The Library is essential for the continuity of curriculum delivery and research. Electronic resources will remain available, as usual. Access to electronic collections represents 99.6 percent of all Library business. We anticipate there will be minimal impact to the community in terms of obtaining scholarly materials.
In addition, all scheduled courses and consultations with librarians, archivists, and public service associates will continue virtually.
Lending and delivery of all physical resources, both from Tech’s collections and Interlibrary Loan, are suspended until further notice except in exceptional circumstances. As such, we will make every effort to acquire electronic content to support our faculty and students. Additionally, we will continue to deliver Interlibrary Loan content electronically, upon request and if available. There may be delays in our delivery as we are operating with minimal staffing to ensure the safety of our team members.
Despite the building closure, the Library will continue to provide virtual support services in lieu of in-person archival and resource access. Given access to physical collections is unavailable at this time, we encourage use and request of electronic copies when possible.
