Please note that the libraries will be closed as of Friday, March 20 at 4:30 PM. Due to the Governor's stay-at-home order, scanning of course materials will be unavailable after that time. However, staff and librarians will still be available to assist with other library needs. We will continue to order e-books. If the availability of services changes, we will update this page.
