A Message from the Dean of the Library on Coronavirus
We’re halfway through the fall semester and I wanted to share some information regarding library services.
You may notice that our hours are now back to normal. Most of the week, we are open until 11:45 pm. On Sunday, October 24, we will again be open on Sundays until 1:45 am. 在学期结束的时候, we plan to be open until 1:45 am for the full week to help you to prepare for final exams.
Note that there are modified hours during Fall Break. We will be closed on Saturday, October 16. Hours are reduced on Sunday and Monday and back to normal on Tuesday. Click on the “Hours” link in the upper right hand corner of the library’s home page for complete information.
We ask our users to continue to take steps to protect the health of our users and employees. Handwashing is extremely important in preventing the spread of COVID. In addition, we have a number of hand sanitizing stations located throughout the library. 请自由使用.
All floors are open to the public from Sunday through Friday. Small group study rooms are available on the 4th, 5th, and 6th floors. You can book a study room and check out a key at the 循环 Desk.
We have added a wealth of new information resources—all available digitally—over the summer. 其中包括 complete JSTOR Arts and Sciences collections (thousands of journals from vol.1, no. 1 forward, in high quality digital format), archives of a variety of magazines (生活,财富、时间 以及更多) 早期美国报纸, 业务数据库 IBISWorld公司, and several additional subject-specific databases. 项目的缪斯, a popular resource containing additional journal titles, will become available in January. These products represent an incredible increase in the information resources available to our users and are available online to all members of the 拉马尔大学 and LIT communities.
Library reference services are offered through chat. This allows us to provide you with access to a live reference librarian 24/7, including during hours that the library is closed.
总而言之, we believe that you will see a higher level of service while we continue to maintain distancing and cleanliness. 你可以参考 the university’s COVID-19 information page for information on the university’s response to COVID. You can also access up-to-date information on case counts for the university and county by referring to 该大学的COVID仪表板.
If you have questions, please feel free to ask at the 循环 Desk on the first floor.
Continued best wishes to you as you finish the semester.
最好的问候,Arne J. Almquist, Ph值.D.
Dean of the Library/Vice President for Information 管理 and Decision Support
