What if we have to go back to all-online learning?

When we quickly changed to online learning in the spring, many publishers made resources available for free for a limited time.  Most of those special provisions have expired, so what will we do if we have to go back to online learning?

  • Request digital copies of books that your students need for their research or required reading.  Linda can check to see if they are available to purchase through our Discovery search or Overdrive collection.
  • Use a Fair Use Checklist to see if materials can be scanned or copied for students.
  • Let students know that we would again be willing to mail books to them.  If they know their research topics and have enough warning before leaving campus, encourage them to check out books so they can do their research from home.  
  • Let us know if you have other requests or ideas for continuing service to our students, and we'll see what we can work out for their benefit.
