Library Services are Virtually Here for You!

by April Akins on 2020-03-16T06:52:00-04:00 | Comments

While the physical library is closed, the library staff is still available to help you with your information needs.

You can reach us by virtual chat, email, or make an appointment for an online video chat meeting. 

Ask Us chat symbolemail envelope message


  • Find our virtual chat service by locating the Ask us! button in the top right corner of our homepage. Chat will be monitored between the hours of 8 am - 5 pm Monday - Friday.
  • Email us at and we can work with you on your library need as quickly as possible.
  • Use our Make an Appointment with a Librarian service to schedule a time to chat through a video chat meeting. 
  • We have an extensive e-book collection as well as online article databases for your research needs.  Check out the quick links section of our homepage.

At this time, requests for books through PASCAL and Interlibrary Loan will be suspended. We will still be assisting with interlibrary loan article requests.

If you have checked out materials from PASCAL or through Interlibrary Loan and they are becoming due do not be concerned.  Libraries across the country are understanding of the situation.  Lander owned books will be renewed until the end of December or can be returned in our outdoor book drop (front of building underneath the bronze plaque of Larry Jackson). 

Faculty, if you have scheduled information literacy sessions in the coming weeks we will be reaching out to find alternative ways to deliver instruction to your students. 

Our upcoming BearCat Search drop-in sessions will be rescheduled for later dates.
