Library Services: About the Library

Welcome everyone -- Let's collaborate! Your inquiries guide us in developing the most relevant materials and services.


Welcome to Your Library!

Please check this guide regularly for library updates in regards to services for the Summer Quarter. We hope to add more as we become familiar with a limited on-campus life along with our online campus life.  

The library is currently closed for studying, browsing the collection, and computer use.  However, resources are available.

  • Monday, July 20, 2020, a pick-up/return service begins, Pick-Up and Return Service.
  • Virtual Library accessible through Canvas - eliminates the need to leave Canvas for locating library resources.
  • Reference and interlibrary loan (requesting materials from other libraries) are available via email.
    • Reference -
    • Interlibrary Loan -

I appreciate your patience as our physical library becomes a virtual one. â€‹Good Luck for the Summer Quarter!
