Finding Books and course materials

The library is working on ways to help students access course materials during the physical closure of the library building. Please go through the following checklist to access course materials: 
    1. Check to see if your book is available through the Internet Archive. 
    2. If your book is not available there, does your instructor have a PDF of the book or sections of it posted on Canvas?
    3.  If you do not see your textbook on the above site and do not have a PDF of it, please fill out the Digitization Request Form
  • Request Research Assistance: Fill out the virtual research consultation form to set up a more in-depth research meeting with a college librarian (over the phone or over video-conference software).
  • WiFi Hotspots Waitlist: We have more WiFi hotspots on order, so sign up here to be placed on the waitlist to check them out.  Our hotspots are for students only -- staff and faculty should contact ITS if they have a technology request.
  • Covid-19 and Fake News: There is an abundance of fake news on the pandemic. Take a look at our Fake News Guide for tips and resources on how to find reliable sources.
