This guide contains information about Vassar College Libraries resources and services that are available while library buildings are closed, and/or for those who are working and researching away from campus.

In order to equitably meet the needs of students learning both on- and off-campus, library course reserves will be a digital-only collection this year. Upon faculty request, library staff locate, identify and purchase course materials available electronically to the fullest extent possible through purchasing e-books, scanning, and purchasing digital site licenses (DSL). The forms for reserves requests are below. For more information about submitting requests, copyright and fair use considerations, and other recommendations and caveats, please see our Course Reserves guide.
Status of circulation and interlibrary loan/Connect NY services (July 2020):
The Federal Depository physical collection is also closed, consistent with Main Library hours, but researchers may continue to access online documents. Please see our guide for more information about government documents.
