Instructional services

Although the physical Lloyd Sealy Library is currently closed until further notice, we are always here to assist faculty and students with teaching, learning and research.

Please note that we do our best to accommodate library instruction requests, but due to budget and staff constraints, we must target and prioritize certain classes.

At this time we strongly encourage faculty to remain aware of the resources they are assigning for classes. While the library is physically closed, students and faculty will not be able to access physical books (circulating and reserve collections), DVDs, etc. for borrowing or scanning. If your assignment requires an item that is only accessible via the physical library, please make every effort to ensure that you are able to provide the material to your students via alternative methods. This page provides additional information and suggestions.
