You know we love seeing you come to the library to study, hang out, write, or to do any number of other things. But sometimes you have to access library resources from home because the library may be closed or because you don’t have the time (or energy) to make it to campus. Luckily for you a number of our resources are available 24/7, and that’s today’s #WednesdayWisdom. Just because the library is closed doesn’t mean you don’t have access to what we have to offer.
So here’s just a taste of what you can do from home:
- Search the library catalog for books and movies. True, you can’t access the physical copy but you can Request It and have it placed on the hold shelf for you to pick up the next day.
- Search the library catalog for eBooks. Those are available any time, day or night. You can read them on your computer or you may download and read them on most eReaders. (Most of our eBooks offer the option to download).
- Access any of our databases! Whether you need to find an article for a paper, read some literary criticism, or look up biographical information on an artist you can do that with our databases.
- Get quick answers to questions you might have about the library by checking out our FAQ section on the library homepage.
- Request books through MOBIUS. There might be a time when you’re looking for material that the library doesn’t have in-house. You can place your MOBIUS request anytime and have it delivered to our library in 3-4 business days.
So remember, the library tries to meet you where YOU are. We aim to provide help at your moment of need – even if that moment happens to be at 2 a.m.
