Instructional services

We are always here to assist faculty and students with teaching, learning and research. In Fall 2021, physical spaces of the Lloyd Sealy Library will reopen, though some services will remain limited. We will do our best to accommodate library instruction requests, but in addition to continuing to target and prioritize certain classes, due to staff constraints, we ask for your patience and collaboration when planning for library instruction.

As always, we strongly encourage faculty to remain aware of the resources they are assigning for classes. In some instances, students and faculty who continue to learn and teach remotely may 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.
