As of Sunday, March 15, Morris Library will be closed until at least March 30. We realize the inconvenience that this causes our faculty and students, but this is the best course of action to keep our staff safe during this uncertain time. The Librarians at Morris Library are working to ensure that we are providing a seamless transition for our library services. Currently, there are librarians monitoring our Ask a Library service, operating under our Spring Break hours of 8:00am to 5:00pm.
During this time, I wanted to make you aware of the services that we are still continuing despite our doors being closed. If you visit this Library Continuity page, you can find additional information about our streaming services, linking to library resources for your students, and copyright issues. If you have questions, we have created a general FAQ page. If you have specific questions related to Political Science, IR, or History resources, please feel free to email me directly.
I can also provide the following support to help with your transition to online instruction:
- Create a research guide with links to library resources for students (these guides can be embedded into Canvas)
- Host live Zoom library sessions for students (this could be one-on-one research consultations or group classes). These sessions can also be recorded
- Create library-related activities for students
- Find alternative resources for print material while the library is closed (both primary and secondary)
- Add me to your Canvas account to have students have direct contact with me
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if I can help you with this transition to online courses. Stay safe!
