McCain Library is happy to welcome new and returning students to campus this spring! If you are unfamiliar with the library’s new Covid-19 policies and procedures, check out the January issue of The Study Hall, McCain Library’s monthly newsletter. This month’s issue addresses how to enter and exit the building, procedures for requesting physical and electronic access to books and other library materials, research appointment information, and study space policies. Subscribe to the newsletter here to receive it directly to your inbox every month.
To learn how to access Course Reserves, check out this blog post or this detailed Instagram post. We are not lending physical Reserves this semester, but you are still able to access electronic versions of them through our Controlled Digital Lending service. After verifying your textbook is on Reserve in WorldCat, email email@example.com to request a PDF scan of a chapter or section of your textbook. We can share the scan with you for 2 hours just like we would a physical Reserve, so be sure to include what time you would like access to the text.
The library is open for students to study in this semester. Please review the library hours to ensure we are open when you need to study or print. When entering the building, come through the Northeast Ground Floor doorway facing Alston, then continue through the CDVL into the library portion of the building. Please keep your ID card on you to enter. When it is time to exit, leave through the first floor double doors.
We are excited to see you back in our building and hope you have a great semester!
